London: England manager Fabio Capello has told Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger to start spending before the club’s season goes up in smoke.
Wenger has come under fire for failing to line up a replacement for Cesc Fabregas, while Samir Nasri also looks on his way out of the club.
“I have a good relationship with him, he’s a good manager, but it’s not a good moment. It’s difficult after six years without a trophy for such an important club like Arsenal,” a daily quoted Capello, as saying.
“He needs to buy some new players some important ones, but it’s difficult to find top names at this moment because the best are playing with important clubs, teams who want to win,” he added.
Arsenal has not won a trophy for six years and fans are concerned at a lack of buying activity in the transfer market this summer.
