Former Super Eagles forward, Nwankwo Kanu believes Arsenal has what it takes not only to make it the top four of the Premier League but to win trophies as well.
The Atlanta Olympic gold medalist stated this on Thursday in an interview with goal where he commended the Arsenal management for hiring Unai Emery as Arsene Wenger replacement.
“Top four? Yes they will,” he said. “But for a team of Arsenal’s calibre, the question is not should they? They have to start winning those trophies to make sure the fans are happy because at the end of the day that’s what counts.
“They have a good strike force but as I said, every department of the team has to be good. If they do that, then I think we will pick up.”
“Unai Emery’s not a bad coach. His record speaks for him. If he was not a good coach, I don’t think Arsenal will have brought him on board.
“But the league here is totally different and very strong. But with time, he is going to show what he is made of. Last year he didn’t do bad. This year I believe he will do better. Let’s hope it works out like that.”
