Arsenal made a big mistake in not sacking Arsene Wenger

Carlo Ancelotti joined PSG in December after being sacked by Chelsea. The Italian won the double in his first season but failed to inspire The Blues as they finished without a trophy the following season.

The 52-year-old admitted he was hoping to replace Arsene Wenger in north London.

The Gunners are struggling with many Arsenal fans (myself included) feel he is taking the club backwards.

He told Gazzetta dello Sport: “I was keen on a year-long sabbatical, hoping that in the summer a job like Tottenham or Arsenal – a top London bench – would become available, but I was tired of not working.

“Al Thani [PSG chairman] is similar to Abramovich in one thing: he doesn’t like it when people talk about him, rather than the team. [AC Milan owner Silvio] Berlusconi was a different thing from them both.”

Ancelotti also admitted that he found Abramovich “very cold” and insists Ligue 1 is a much more versatile league than the Premier League.

“When Abramovich fired me, he was very cold. He said me good luck and stopped,” he added.

“He knew that I wasn’t in agreement with that decision and he preferred to avoid talking about it in detail.

“Ligue 1 is tactically more various than Premier League. In England it isn’t difficult, every team plays in pretty much the same way.”

The former AC Milan man would have been the perfect replacement for an Arsenal boss, who along with his team have procrastinated. His inability to sign quality players, in particular in defense have suggested his best days are behind him. It’s ironic but the man who revolutionized football, is now looking rather prehistoric in his methods.

    I think it’s no one’s fault but Wenger himself. It’s not about resources and some of the players are simply a joke. Take Arsene Wenger to Inter Milan and see if he stays at the top half let alone winning the champions league. Compare Wenger to Mou and you will find that one is a pony trick and the other is a master tactician.
