Former Gunners player Nwankwo Kanu said that the club needs a miracle to win the Premier League. The former Nigerian international said that the club should be patient at the moment.
Kanu said, “If it happens and they win the league, it’s a miracle. It takes time for the newcomers, the new signings, to adapt. We have to allow time for him to bring his own style and the way he wants to play.”
The 42-year old added, “For the new manager, it’s going to be a very big challenge; the fans want them to perform in the league in his first year, which is always difficult for a new coach. It’s a very big club – coming into a big club you need a trophy, so if you don’t win the league, you need to win the others. It’s hard, but that’s what you expect of a coach of that stature and a big club.”
Nwankwo Kanu also admired the fact that most of Arsenal’s summer signings are defensive-oriented players. “He’s been signing new, good players. They’re more defensive, and not allowing goals, which is good,” said Kanu. “They have to know how to win games, even if it’s 1-0. All they need is the three points.”
