Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has made a surprising comparison between the current Spurs squad and Manchester United’s Class of ’92, according to The Mirror.
Wenger left his post as the Gunners boss during the summer, stepping down after 22 years in charge.
The Frenchman led the North London-based club to three Premier League titles and seven FA Cup wins during his time at the club.
He was replaced in the summer of 2018 with Spaniard Unai Emery and has now made a bizarre claim about Arsenal’s fierce rivals.
As per The Mirror, he said: “Tottenham have a good, young generation. They have a core of young players such as Harry Winks, Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Eric Dier, as we had at Arsenal.
“Man United had it too with their Giggs, Scholes, Beckham and Butt generation, but now Spurs have established a good, basic platform to develop from.
“They are maturing and it will be interesting to see how they develop.”
These comments aren’t likely to sit well with those of an Arsenal persuasion.
Wenger is a legendary figure at the Emirates Stadium and praising Spurs is certainly a strange one.
The former boss led Arsenal to an unbeaten season during the 2003/04 campaign and he is the club’s most successful boss in history.
Despite his interesting comparison regarding Spurs, he does have a point.
It must really rile the Gunners supporters that Mauricio Pochettino hasn’t spent a single penny this season, yet his team is firmly in the mix when it comes to winning the title.
Right now, Spurs are miles ahead of Arsenal and Wenger knows it.
