Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger Defends Decision Not To Sign A Defender

Wenger doesn’t believe that a new defender would’ve helped the Gunners beat Hull City.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has again been forced to defend his summer work in the transfer market, report the Express, with the Gunners having thrown away two more vital Premier League points with a disappointing 2-2 draw at home to Hull City – a result that could’ve been worse if not for a late equaliser from Danny Welbeck.

Arsenal fans were disappointed this summer when Wenger chose not to sign a third senior central defender, having teenager Calum Chambers as the main back-up to Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker, a decision that has already been made to look foolish this season and was again by two Hull goals against a makeshift back line.

Wenger, however, believes that it is a simple matter of a lack of concentration, rather than the actual personnel, that is costing his side at the moment:

“We have conceded too many goals and we have to look at ourselves defensively. Some other teams have bought many defenders and concede goals as well. I think it’s a matter of concentration.”
