Exclusive: Fabrizio Romano makes firm prediction about “excellent” Arsenal despite title heartache

Posted by

Fabrizio Romano has paid tribute to Arsenal and predicted bright things for them in the future despite them finishing second to Manchester City again in this year’s Premier League title race.

The Gunners took the title race to the final day of the season, but just didn’t quite have enough in them to see off Man City, who also ended the campaign in incredible form.

Speaking exclusively to CaughtOffside for his latest Daily Briefing column, Romano reassured Arsenal fans that he expected their team to come back from this and to continue to compete at the highest level.

There is plenty to admire about Mikel Arteta’s side, and Romano says he feels there can be optimism about their future, even if for now we simply had to congratulate the superb job done by Pep Guardiola and the City board.

Arsenal fans will no doubt be hurting this morning, but Romano has great knowledge of what’s going on inside the game and his optimism for the north London club should surely be reassuring to Gooners as they look forward to their team trying again next season.

Arsenal’s future looks bright, says Romano

“So, the Premier League title race is over after a tense final day, with Arsenal getting the result they needed, beating Everton 2-1, but without the favour that they also needed from West Ham against Manchester City. It’s now an historic four titles in a row for Pep Guardiola’s side after they won 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium,” Romano said.

“It’s difficult to take for Arsenal, you could see how disappointed their players looked on the pitch after the game, but I’d be optimistic for Arsenal’s future. Their project is excellent, they’re a great group and they were really close. I’m sure they will be competing again at top level.

“But for this year, there’s only one thing we can say: congrats to Man City for one more insane season, Pep Guardiola confirms he’s a legendary manager and this group of players, this board are really special.”
