Calls from Arsenal fans for the manager to be sacked have been growing once again, with the Gunners’ 3-2 loss against Stoke City on Saturday too much for many to take.
Winterburn has backed the boss to come good however, and believes that the Frenchman is changing his ways and is willing to make the necessary changes.
The signings of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez were big statements by the former Monaco man, and Winterburn is confident that he will continue in that vein.
“My take on it is we are in a new period for Arsenal, particularly since the signing of Mesut Ozil,” he said.
“It looks as if the club has got some substantial funds now and I think Arsene Wenger needs to look at the situation and decide if he can get reinforcements in.
“The squad is too thin and there are certain areas they know need to be improved if they are going to challenge for the title next season, which Arsene Wenger is telling us is going to happen.
“I’d like to see him in charge simply I because I’d like to see, with the money I believe is now available, whether he will change and look to bring in new players, and it is looking like he will.
“Arsenal have never spent £40milion before like they did with Ozil and £30million like they did on Alexis Sanchez. Now, if he went out and did that on a holding midfield player and maybe another centre-half then people would start to say Arsene Wenger is changing his ways.”
Like the former Arsenal man says, the North London club have never spent £40m on a player before. The question is was this down to Wenger’s frugality or the board’s restrictions?
Arsene Wenger surely has to spend in January, but at this point it may not be enough to convince fans that he deserves to stay at the Emirates.
