Former Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry has stated that Arsene Wenger is not the only person to be blamed for the failed title challenge.
Arsenal, who is 13 points behind Leicester City, are currently struggling to keep hold of the fourth place, and they may miss out on a Champions League place next season.
Henry believes that it is not only the manager that has to be blamed but also the players, the staffs and everyone associated with the team. He said that football is a team sport and that you win together, and you lose together.
According to him, there need to be changes in the team next season if they want to compete for the title. It would be difficult for them given that all the teams around them will be investing massively and that Arsenal will have to make investments too.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been increasingly linked with Manchester United in recent weeks.
The 34-year-old is out of contract with PSG at the end of the season. He refused to confirm that he will sign an extension with the French club. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been a major reason in making PSG as one of the global powers. However, he appears to be in search of a new challenge and this may come in the form of a move to United. The club are in desperate need of some quality forwards. Since Ibrahimovic will not cost anything in wages, it will be seen as a favourable deal.
Midfielder Juan Mata has given the first indication that Ibrahimovic’s next destination maybe Old Trafford. He has welcomed the Swedish striker by saying that his qualities will enhance United’s strength. Ibrahimovic is a household name in Netherlands, Italy, and France. He has also won league titles in Spain apart from these countries. The only major league he has not played is the English Premier League. The chance to test in such a competitive league will be hard to turn down. Mata will enjoy playing with every match given that the striker enjoys being on the end of a great ball. The Spaniard recently set up Marcus Rashford for the only goal of the game against Manchester City. Continue reading Zlatan Ibrahimovic rumors about Joining MU
Gareth Bale has declared that he is not seeking any immediate move away from Real Madrid since he feels happy at the club.
The Welshman’s future at the Santiago Bernabeu has been an ever present speculation. Even though he has joined the club as the world record transfer, Cristiano Ronaldo continues to be seen as the number one not just at the club but across the world. Bale has been played in the number of positions and this has not exactly helped the former Tottenham winger. Ronaldo, meanwhile, has been the centre focus in the Madrid team even after the arrival of Rafa Benitez.
Benitez clearly trusted Bale much more than Ronaldo and this led to the Welshman being given a lot more of the defence of responsibilities. Now with Benitez gone out of the picture, Zinedine Zidane has become the new manager at Madrid. It remains to be seen if Bale’s position at the club will change once again. The player was asked about his future plans to which he stated that he wants to remain at Madrid for the time being. This is an indication from the 26-year-old that things about exactly smooth on his side. Bale continues to be linked with a return to the Premier League with United interested in him. Continue reading Gareth Bale has declared that he is not seeking any immediate move
Juan Mata has confirmed that he would like to see goalkeeper David de Gea to stay at Manchester United. The Spaniard has been linked with Real Madrid for several months now.
Since he is out of contract next summer, the Spanish club want to take advantage of the situation by signing him on a relatively low transfer fee. After having moved to Old Trafford for around £ 18 million, it is believed that United will be receiving only around £ 13 million for the goalkeeper. Personally, it is believed that the 24 year old wants to return to Madrid – the place where he grew up.
Even the fact that De Gea has come on the back of a stunning campaign with United is unlikely to convince him to stay at Old Trafford for longer. Madrid will offer much more possibilities of immediately winning trophies whereas United are still going through a transitional period after the departure of Ferguson almost 2 years ago. Ifde Gea does choose to leave England, he will be linking up with Rafa Benitez at Madrid for the first time. Mata says that the Spaniard has the ability to get the best out of any player.
