Former Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski has suggested that the current Arsenal team does not have the fighting spirit that is very much required in order to fight for the top honours.
After having spent more than a decade without a major title, Arsenal have managed a couple of FA Cup victories and success in the Community Shield over the last three years. However, the club continue to go without a Premier league title for several years. The chances of winning the league title in the 2017-18 season appear to be very slim given the competition have strengthened the immensely during the summer.
Podolski says that Arsenal are in a much weaker position compared to recent years. The team missed out on the top four place for the first time in more than two decades and will be playing in the Europa league as a result. He says that the attitude of the fans has changed over the years after watching the team go through repeated failures. Podolski spent a couple of years at the Emirates stadium before moving to Turkish football. (more…)
