Wenger Not Happy with Top 2 Finish

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is unsatisfied with finishing second to Leicester City in the Premier League this season.

The Gunners pipped north London rivals Tottenham to the silver medal after thumping Aston Villa 4-0 on Sunday as Spurs were thrashed 5-1 by Newcastle United.

“We are second in the league and we want to be first,” said Wenger, whose side finished 10 points adrift of the champions.

“But if you’re not first, you might as well be 10th or 12th. You might as well say first is good and the rest is rubbish.

“In sport, when you work in a football club you know that every win you have to fight and prepare more.”

The Frenchman gave credit to the Foxes, but pointed out his men twice got the better of Claudio Ranieri’s outfit.

“We want to win more. We want to be first. But as well, we have made over 70 points in the Premier League and it is not easy,” added the Frenchman.

“You have to say Leicester have pulled off an exceptional win. They lost only three games. But we have beaten them twice.

“So you should look at all the other teams. We are not happy by being second but 18 other teams behind us would be happy to be in our position.” Kickoff
