Wenger Alerts Man City On Tough Task After Treble Feat

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has urged Manchester City to stay busy in the upcoming summer transfer window despite their historic treble win in the 2022/2023 season. Manchester City made history on June 10, defeating Inter Milan 1-0 in the UEFA Champions League final and winning the Premier League and FA Cup, matching Manchester United’s 1999 achievement. Pep Guardiola’s team has dominated in recent years, winning five out of six Premier League titles, but Wenger believes they cannot afford to stand still after their landmark achievement.

As FIFA’s Chief of Global Football Development, Wenger was quoted by the Mirror as saying, “They will lose maybe important players. This team is not an old team but there are no young players. Apart from [Erling] Haaland, who is 22 now, all the others are between 24 and 32 years old. So two or three new players will need to change. They have to find the same quality again.”

With the futures of certain players like Ilkay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva looking increasingly uncertain, Guardiola will no doubt add some new faces to his squad. Mateo Kovacic is believed to be on the verge of signing with the Cityzens, while Celta Vigo’s Gabri Veiga and West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice have also been touted with a move to Etihad.

In conclusion, Wenger’s advice to Manchester City serves as a reminder that even the most successful teams must continue to evolve and improve to maintain their position at the top of the game.
