Arsene Wenger: Arsenal have gone from human size to inhuman.

Wenger reckons Arsenal's problems run far deeper than just changing managers.


Arsene Wenger is not happy his former club Arsenal 'have gone from human size to inhuman' in recent years.


The Gunners are in search for a new manager after wielding the axe of Unai Emery, with Carlo Ancelotti, Mikel Arteta and Patrick Vieira amongst favourites to land the job at the Emirates.


The north London club recently went through their worst run of form in over 30 years as they failed to win in eight Premier League games until they eventually secured a comeback-win over West Ham United on Monday night.


Speaking to So Foot Wenger revealed Arsenal carry too much administrative weight: "These days, the size of the club sometimes stop them from keeping the culture of performance.


"When I arrived at Arsenal, we were 80. When I left, there were 750, and when there's 750 people in one organisation, each thinks about saving themselves rather than improving.


"I think there's a degree of reflection for me: how do you keep that desire to perform? Up to about 150, I think you can stay human. You know the name of the wife, of the kid of such and such."


The Frenchman, who spent 22 years with Arsenal, continued: "My regret at Arsenal is to have gone from human size to inhuman, with a heavier administrative weight. Everything accelerated.


"Ten years ago, you’d see a guy who was good, you’d get him in, give him a tracksuit and he’d be a part of the team.


"That’s long gone. Now, if you want a new physio, you go through 300 applications. That’s how, at Arsenal, bit by bit, I felt the club slip away from me."
