One thing everyone at Arsenal seems to agree on, is that the whole Arsene Wenger situation should have been taken care of much earlier. Former goalkeeper David Seaman is no exception.
The timing of the announcement on Wenger’s contract should have been dealt with a lot earlier to get that out of the way and let people move on with stuff. It would have been easier for the players if all that anger wasn’t there
Seaman told Omnisport, while also sending a message to Arsenal fans;
The demonstrations and the unrest within the fans wasn’t good for the team. They’re venting their anger on matchdays, which isn’t helping at all
he said. As for his opinion on Wenger staying at the club, he seemed to have no doubts that
he’s definitely the ideal man. I’m very happy Arsene has signed for another two years, and it’s about moving forward.
The former Arsenal keeper does expect though to see some changes, mostly regarding the club’s strict salary policy.
We’ve got to start attracting the top players again and that might mean moving the wage structure a bit. That’s the way of attracting the top players, obviously paying the right fees as well. We still need a few players, it’s been like that for a few seasons now and it’s time people realise that’s what needs to be done
