Has Wenger 'lost it'? Former Arsenal star claims he has…

Manager Jurgen Klopp said Liverpool must qualify for the Champions League more frequently after sealing a top-four finish and completing an "outstanding" season with a 3-0 victory against Middlesbrough on Sunday.
So, here are TWO United stars Arsenal must try and land this summer...
Personally the biggest thing for us at City was winning the FA Cup: getting that first trophy under our belt, winning something, giving you that belief.
The game will mark an anniversary which falls on June 3, with Liverpool's party mood further improved by the news that they will be among five seeded teams for the Champions League play-off round, avoiding potentially tricky ties against Sevilla, Napoli, Ajax and Dynamo Kiev. A year ago we came close (to a trophy) but couldn't get over the line. "That is the next step".
That it turn has meant that even were he to remain at the club, Jürgen Klopp and Liverpool would have to construct a first choice squad around the assumption that Sturridge wouldn't be in it-that his involvement would be as a bonus rather than as a building block.
If you have a top player who wants to come to London and at Arsenal he is being offered say 100 grand and at another club it's 200 grand, where is he going to go?
Coutinho, 24, has been continuously linked with a €90m (£77.9m, $101m) switch to the Camp Nou in recent months with Barcelona attacker Neymar championing a potential move, but the Brazil global rubbished speculation and is not interested in becoming "just another player" at an elite club.
Anfield, then, was understandably nervy about whether or not they could get the job done - but at least they were playing a visiting team that have been woeful this season.
"This season we have improved".
We can only hope that Ox keeps developing and becomes a key member of the team in years to come. For me, it's the best competition and Liverpool needs to be there consistently, all the time, and I love the perspective.
"In the big games last season, we managed to have the most points out of the top six but in the head-to-head games we didn't do so well and that probably makes the difference because we gave points to our rivals and they took advantage of it".
He said: "The strike force and taking their chances [will be key for Arsenal] because in Sanchez you've got a guy who can score from anywhere".
