Patrick Vieira Slams Former Boss Arsene Wenger

Patrick Vieira Slams Former Boss Arsene Wenger

The 27-year-old missed the first game of the season which saw the Gunners lost 4-3 against Liverpool at the Emirates.

He said: "I don't understand why you say I am reluctant (to spend money)". I think they can do it a bit more.

Wenger has made only one major close-season signing, recruiting Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka from Borussia Moenchengladbach for a reported fee of 35 million pounds ($45.8 million, 40.4 million euros).

Responding to a question referencing the disgruntled away support he added; "Fans are hugely influenced by the media".

Although I agree in principle that being a collective team is better than throwing a bunch of players together in hope they can win something, most teams have quite simply integrated a few players into an already strong side.

"If I just bought someone for £45m will I have done well?" It is surprising that you come out of football games and you don't speak about football games, you have to speak about money.

Wenger, though, has criticised the current focus on expensive signings, sarcastically saying he is sorry that summer arrival Rob Holding "didn't cost £55 million," and Vieira has some sympathy with his former boss.

Manchester clubs' dominance continues on Week 2 of Premier League
And this is exactly why his transfer was so much appreciated by millions of Manchester United fans across the globe. The former United assistant manager will face the club for the first time since leaving in 2013.

"I'm disappointed not to see ex- Arsenal players working at Arsenal".

Wenger was then challenged in his post-match news conference to answer those calls and he responded with a forceful explanation that spending on large transfer fees does not guarantee the purchase of a good player. "I believe it's not right".

Leicester started the defence of their Premier League crown with a surprise 2-1 loss away to Hull City last weekend and Wenger said: "The challenge for them is to do well again and to show that their previous year was not a one-off".

"He will have to find the right balance because if he thinks he will win games by himself that will be a massive mistake for him, if he tries to do something that he can't do that will be a massive mistake as well".

Vardy, 29, could be a thorn in Arsenal's side on Saturday, having netted three times in the two meetings between Leicester and the Gunners last season. Wenger explained at his press conference on Friday morning that inflated prices made it hard for English teams to get any value.

"Yes. We have no limit in age", said Wenger when asked if he would sign a centre-back.
