Arsenal goalkeeper, Wojciech Szczesny, has admitted that the current Arsenal squad is nowhere near as good as Arsene Wenger's squads of old.
The Polish international goalkeeper has admitted that he has sympathy for the manager, who has come under-fire this season, and insists that he wouldn't be under this much pressure if he had a better squad at his disposal.
The pressure has increased on Wenger after another trophy-less season stretches their drought to eight years without silverware, but Szczesny is adamant that Wenger can bring the glory days back to the club, acknowledging that the thought of Arsenal without Wenger is incomprehensible.
Speaking to the Sunday People, Szczesny said: "I can't imagine it here without the manager.
"With all due respect to my team-mates it was easier to work with Dennis Bergkamp, Robert Pires and Thierry Henry.
"We have a strong squad now, but there is no player of Henry's class."
Szczesny, who has recently been dropped after a string of poor performances, has also revealed that he could not imagine playing for another football team, despite criticism from the club's fans.
"Physically, I can imagine myself at a different club, yes. But mentally, absolutely no. I'm too happy here.
"What guarantee do I have that I will win trophies somewhere else? Arsenal will win things again, I trust the club's philosophy."
Looking forward, the Polish shot-stopper believes the final nine fixtures of the Premier League season are the "biggest games of their careers" as they battle to secure a top-four finish that would guarantee Champions League football next season.
"We only have nine games to save the club and not humiliate ourselves.
"It would be horrible not to qualify [for the Champions League] this time.
"Those are our most important games in our careers. It's our hardest time since I got here."
