He gets asked Tottenham-related questions in practically every Press conference, let alone in the one just before Arsenal’s clash against them at the White Heart Lane. This time, one of the questions was about Tottenham’s… continuity, their chances of keeping their best players.
For a longer time, if the budget is too much different, it’s impossible
Arsene Wenger commented, predicting that his north London rivals will, sooner or later, have to live without some of their best players, like Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
When you get to a level, at some stage the best players want to be paid like the other players at that level
the Arsenal manager said, implying that Tottenham may be doing great financially, but even so, they cannot match the strength of other top clubs, bigger than them.
If the differential is too big, you’re never able to keep your best players
Wenger added. Arsenal are visiting Tottenham, and even if they beat them, most probably they will finish below them in the Premier League for the first time in 20 years. Arsenal’s biggest concern though is to finish in the top four, so as to play Champions League football next season as well.
