Wenger: The Grove Too Small?
Arsene Wenger has suggested that Arsenal's ambition is so high that Ashburton Grove maybe too small.
In a statement from Le Boss that boosts the confidence no end, he suggests that our spanking new stadium is not big enough to house the hundreds of thousands of fans wanting tickets, and that his own ambition matches that of the clubs with Wenger wanting to not only dominate the Premier League, but Europe aswell.
'My project is to dominate the English league and to dominate Europe,' he told France Football.
'Nowadays Arsenal is a club superior to what I could have imagined at the beginning.'
'When we built our new stadium we talked about a capacity of 50,000, then 55,000, then 60,000. Now we are asking ourselves already if it is too small.'
'That could seem pretentious, but I believe that if you don't give real ambition to a club it will not take off.'
'At Arsenal, I even have more freedom than a lot of other English clubs,' he explained.
'That is why I refused opportunities like Real Madrid.
'I am like an animal that has a lot of freedom and then you want to keep him on a leash.'
The last time Wenger made a statement such as this, the whole footballing world laughed at his suggestion that Arsenal could go an entire league campaign unbeaten.......
