Arsenal led the Premier League table for most of the season, but collapsed in the final stages and handed the title to Guardiola’s City. A good season for the London team, which for one of its legends, Tony Adams, would not happen again next season: “No one expected them to finish so high. I think this team A large proportion of them have already reached their maximum. They are certainly not going to challenge Manchester City next season and without serious recruiting this summer it will be difficult for them to finish as runners-up again.”
The Englishman does not agree with Arteta and goes so far as to ensure that it will be good for Arsenal and the coach if they part ways: “They have spent £400 million on new signings since Arteta was appointed in 2019.” have spent more than a pound sterling but none of them were the players City would have wanted. Arteta said none of his players had reached their peak and denied they had run out of steam . I disagree. They were left without resources mentally, physically and emotionally. It seems to me that Arteta didn’t have much faith in his players on the bench. I am not suggesting for a minute that Arsenal Arteta is going to get rid of him, but I fear it may be the best thing for him.”
Adams assured that they would have to make a lot of signings to finish as runners-up again, as the rest of the rivals are going to improve their squads, but at no point does he see Arsenal fighting to win the premiership: “City’s The substitute team is better than any other team in the Premier League and we know that Newcastle, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea will be much stronger next time.”
The Englishman also commented on which players Arsenal could sign: “Unfortunately, I don’t think they have the money to buy everything they need this summer and so I’m afraid they are already on their way to winning the title.” have missed their window of opportunity.” , Declan Rice may be one of them. Arsenal need another centre-back, a striker, a midfielder and a winger. Everyone needs to be better than the players they already have. The problem is Arsenal want players who are already used to English football and they will always be too expensive when they go to buy them from their Premier League rivals,” concluded the former player.
