Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger seems to be frustrated about the fact that several big Premiership clubs are reinforcing some smaller clubs and thus creating an advantage for themselves.
According to the manager football players over the age of 21 shouldn’t be allowed to be loaned out.
“What I would like to see in the Premier League is that you are not allowed to loan players over the age of 21.”
“At the moment it is an opportunity for some clubs to reinforce other teams, without losing ownership of the player.
“For example, if a big club sends a big player to another club in the Premier League on loan, they only have benefits.
“That player cannot face his own club, yet he could win games against their rivals.
“Therefore, I think it would be better if players over 21 didn’t go on loan in the top league.”
Wenger defended himself about the Benayoun situation, saying that he had no alternative than this and that it’s not entirely the same things.
“It’s true that I haven’t done that often. But we were on the last day of the transfer window. We knew that Jack Wilshere would need surgery.
“So we were short in midfield at that point and to find two players so late was nearly impossible for us without using a loan.
“At that time, the most important thing was just to sign him.”
Arsene Wenger should really think about bringing some real midfield talent either now or in the summer. Yossi is a good player but if Arsenal wants to fight for the title they can’t afford to loan players from top Premiership competitors in an attempt to do this.
