Thierry Henry, a former striker for Arsenal still supports his former team strongly. As he prays that the team takes the title, he has advised the football club to look around and get four top quality players. This will boost the team to its success in competition. He says the club must use transfer tactics used by Chelsea last summer if they want to win the long waited title.
The English Premiere League legend spoke to Super Sunday saying the club need to buy new four players who are tough. “Arsenal need to buy four players, they need that spine,” he said. He ended up quoting the positions that should be replaced. “They need a goalkeeper, they still need a centre-back, they still need a holding midfielder and, I’m afraid, they need a top, top-quality striker in order to win this league again.” He said.
The Frenchman explained what Arsenal needs through giving an example of what exactly Chelsea did “The best example for me today was Chelsea. They struggled last year and they were still competing to win the league. They now have [Thibaut] Courtois, [Nemanja] Matic, Cesc [Fabregas] and Diego Costa.” He said. According to him, Chelsea is about to win the league. “For me that speaks volumes, and we saw it today. A team didn’t and a team did, and Chelsea are about to win the league.” He said.
Thierry also criticized players who do not keep their performance up. “Players need to perform also,” he said. “I will single out Mesut Ozil, who made his eighth appearance against a top-four team today. Zero goals, two assists. That is not enough. Since joining Arsenal he has 14 assists. Now if you look at Fabregas at Chelsea, he has 16 assists in one season,” he made comparison. “At one point, I do think, and I do believe, the players have to step up and stand their game up.” He added.
The Arsenal club must count itself lucky to have the former striker assisting it with advice on how to improve and win the title. Unfortunately, Thierry didn’t speak any positive part to motivate the club, despite Arsenal having performed well in some matches, but the club must get wise to use the criticism to single out any weakness and make corrections.
