Arsene Wenger hits back at Paul Merson jibe

Arsene Wenger hits back at Paul Merson jibe

The former midfielder has even described the recent Arsenal side as an Under-12's team, and it looks like the Frenchman has had enough, I'm sure this won't be the last time we hear about the rift between Wenger and Merson.

'Tactically, he's one of the best I've worked with. "We won our first game at home and I thought we'd be alright and then went to Crystal Palace".

The World Cup victor is again available for selection but Arsenal legend Merson believes Arsene Wenger should take the extreme action of excluding him from the starting line-up on Saturday. I thought 'what have I done coming here - this is going to be embarrassing'. "I know Man City scored six at Watford but Arsenal are not in the same class".

Meanwhile, the Sky Sports Soccer Saturday pundit is set to play for a third tier Welsh club on the outskirts of Cardiff.


In addition, after a shaky start to the campaign, Arsenal's form has seen an upturn which has coincided with Ozil being absent through injury.

Merson's role as a pundit on Sky Sports has left fans with many moments of laughter and confusion with his bold and audacious opinions.

"The global clearance has just come through this morning", Hooper said. I managed Paul Merson, I tried. I have spoken to him and he is over the moon.

Hooper added: "We are a very small club moving forward, but we have got some marvellous things happening".
