A lot of things have changed at Arsenal this year, one was that the gunners saying goodbye to Arsene Wenger who had coached them for two decades and second was some changes at the top roles at the North London club which saw Ivan Gazidis leave the club to join AC Milan. Unai Emery is the current coach while Raul Sanllehi is the head of football and these two are changing how things work at Arsenal.
Arsenal legend Ian Wright has said that he likes the ruthlessness which he is seeing at the Emirates Stadium and predicts that we will no longer see the players running down their contracts.
“I’m pleased for the new ruthless Arsenal in respective of if that’s the way it is going to be then that’s the way it is going to be.” Ian Wright said on his YouTube channel.
“I don’t think we’re going to see too many more players running down contracts and leaving on their terms anymore.”
It seems Ian Wright was indirectly talking about the situation of Aaron Ramsey at Arsenal because the club has put the Wales international in a dilemma after it surprisingly withdrew its offer because the player was asking for ridiculous wages.
It is this very year where we had the Sanchez-Ozil saga which saw Arsenal as a club put in a difficult position because these two were in the final year of their contracts and were their best players at that time, so they took advantage of that to ask for ridiculous wages, we all know what happened as Ozil got his desired £350k a week wages but the club doesn’t want to make the same decisions again.
Unai Emery also showed his ruthlessness when he had just arrived after he openly told Jack Wilshere (who was a darling of the fans) that he wouldn’t get enough chances under him.
