Wenger denies PSG speculation
The speculation surrounding Arsene Wenger’s future at Arsenal beyond the end of the current campaign is still dominating headlines and there have been reports claiming that if the 67-year-old were to leave the Emirates Stadium, he could be heading back to France by joining Paris Saint-Germain.
Wenger has now finally spoken regarding the rumors linking him with a switch to PSG and has denied the claims by stating that he has not even been in contact with the French champions. "There has not been any contact," he told SFR Sports when asked about PSG. "I formally deny that."
Wenger unsure of Koscielny’s return
Arsenal played out an entertaining 2-2 draw against Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday and while the result could be seen as a positive one for the Gunners as they went down twice in the game, fans have been left worried regarding the fitness of defender Laurent Koscielny.
Koscielny had to be forced off at half-time due to an Achilles problem and following the game, manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that he is unsure about the extent of the damage that the French international has suffered.
Wenger told Arsenal’s official website, “I don’t know how long Koscielny will be out for. He came off at half-time with an Achilles problem. How long will that last? I don’t know. Ramsey and Oxlade-Chamberlain have a chance of being available on Wednesday.”
Neville: Arsenal bigger than Chelsea
Arsenal and Chelsea are clearly fierce rivals and while the Gunners do have history on their side, it would be fair to state that the Blues have been a more successful club in recent years.
However, no Arsenal fan will admit to the fact that Chelsea have surpassed their team and now even Manchester United legend Gary Neville has boldly claimed that the North London side remain a bigger club than their West London rivals.
Neville told Sky Sports following Arsenal’s 2-2 draw against Manchester City, “This is a better club than Chelsea. Why wouldn’t players come and play here? Look at this stadium, it’s unbelievable.
“That’s not a criticism of Chelsea. Chelsea are a club that’s really only grown in the last 10 or 15 years. They’ve done brilliantly well. But they’re not as big a club as Arsenal.”
