Alan Shearer warns Arsenal could experience Manchester United-esque drop off

The Match of the Day pundit reckons the Gunners could end up like Manchester United if things such as recruitment don’t improve considerably.

After another awful defensive display against Norwich City, he wrote in his latest Sun column: “The biggest issue, and it’s been a problem for years now, is recruitment.

“Just who is bringing the players into the club? If it’s not the manager, then who is accountable?

“You only need to look at Manchester United to see how big a challenge it was for Emery from the outset.

“Replacing a legend like Arsene Wenger was never going to be easy, even if the Frenchman probably stayed a year or two longer than he should have.

“We’ve seen how hard it has been for bosses trying to replicate Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.
