Former Arsenal defender Campbell questions Gunners’ trophy future

Sol Campbell has told the BBC that he is not sure Arsenal can win a trophy in the near future, adding that while Arsene Wenger can call upon a number of players with great potential, the Gunners manager does not have enough players already at the peak of their game.

Campbell, who had two spells at Arsenal from 2001 to 2006 and January 2010 to August 2010, told the broadcaster: “You’ve got to ask yourself, where are Arsenal going? Do they want to actually win anything? You can have players for the future but it is about getting players who can make a difference now.” Campbell twice won the Premier League title as an Arsenal player, in 2001-02 and 2003-04, as well as three FA Cup victories, in 2002, 2003 and 2005.

This season Arsenal are battling with a host of other clubs to qualify for the Champions League and are currently third, 15 points adrift of table-topping Manchester United, having been knocked out of the Champions League by Serie A side Milan in the second round. The Gunners were also eliminated from the FA Cup by Sunderland and the Carling Cup by Manchester City, confirming that the wait for a trophy since the club’s last FA Cup win in 2005 will continue until at least next season.
