The Gunners are on course for a 20th straight year of Champions League qualification but their boss has denied fans’ claims he is satisfied with that
Arsene Wenger dismissed any suggestion that he is content with a top-four finish in the Premier League – and that defeat hurts now more than at any time in his managerial career.
There is a perception that a place to ensure Champions League football satisfies Arsenal boss Wenger.
But ahead of this season’s finale against Aston Villa at the Emirates on Sunday, he made it clear that, rather than a season of success at the guarantee of at least a third-place finish (if they do not lose to already-relegated Villa), it has been one of irritation.
“You do not do as much work as I do to be happy with a top-four finish,” said Frenchman Wenger . “I am like everybody – frustrated.”
