Wenger mocks Nani for dismissing Arsenal’s Title chances

Arsène Wenger has offered a sarcastic response to Nani’s claims that Arsenal are not contenders for the Premier League title and are already out of the race.


The Gunners boss was clear that he believes his side are also in with a shout, and took the opportunity to have a dig at Nani’s Premier League Prediction Game.

Nani, the Manchester United winger, has said he cannot see anybody winning the league this season "outside of Manchester United or Chelsea".

The Arsenal manager said: "Everybody has a different opinion in this league and nobody is perfect. We live in a society where everybody knows everything and it is a shame to say, ‘I don’t know’.

"I personally don’t know who will win the league and I have managed 1,600 games. So if Nani knows, he must be 1,600 times more intelligent than I am." – Arsene Wenger

Arsenal play Chelsea next, which seems to be a crucial match in the title-stakes already. Monday’s match also represents another chance for Arsenal to end a winless streak against either Chelsea or Manchester United that now stretches 11 games.

“The statistics are history and every game is a new start,” said Wenger. “They have a little bit less confidence than they had in October. We have a good opportunity to show that in the coming months our improvement is bigger than any other team because we are a very young side.
