Arsenal would win title if Wenger had Redknapp’s tactical nous- Paul Merson


Former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson claims Arsenal would win the Premier League if their manager Arsene Wenger had the tactical nous of Harry Redknapp.

The Gunners who finished outside the top four last season, subsequently missing out on Champions League football have not won a Premier League title since the season 2003/04, and Merson, who played under Redknapp at Portsmouth claims the Englishman is tactically superior to Wenger.

“People say Redknapp’s a wheeler-dealer and its so disrespectful,” Merson said via Sky Sports’ A League of Their Own.

“Tactically, he’s one of the best I’ve worked with. If Wenger had Harry Redkanpp’s tactical nous, Arsenal would win the league.”

Arsenal currently sit fifth in the Premier, six points adrift of leaders Manchester City. The Gunners travel to Watford on Sunday for a league encounter.
