Paul Merson told Soccer Saturday over the weekend that he wants Nuno Espirito Santo at Arsenal.
The former Gunners star proved his ignorance once again by suggesting that we are lucky to have Nuno and that he could walk into any top-six job.
Merson has developed a reputation over the years for talking nonsense and to suggest that we are lucky to have Nuno ignores and insults the project we are building.
Arsenal are a bigger club, no question, but at the moment, they are ruined by dressing room problems, fan interference and a board that make awful decisions.
Why would Nuno want to leave a well-run club and risk his reputation for a stab at the shambles that is Arsenal?
Merson seems to think that the Gunners could sack Unai Emery, and Nuno would be begging the Arsenal board to take him, but I don’t think it would be like that.
The former Porto boss has built an amazing rapport with the Molineux faithful and has also developed a squad capable of beating and competing with the very best.
Nuno may well leave Wolves in the near future, but I would be amazed if it is to take over a club as shambolic as Arsenal.
Merson seems to believe that the Gunners still attract the very best, but that is not true, and he should look at the table as we are above his beloved Arsenal looking down at them from fifth.
Do you think Nuno would leave us for Arsenal?
Yes, they are a bigger club
No, we are building a good project
Now, why would Nuno want to abandon us for a club lower down competing in the same European competition?
