Talking forward of the weekend’s motion, Wenger pointed to examples in France, England, Germany and Spain the place one membership is working away with every league.
He mentioned: ”Unpredictability has gone down. Once you take a look at the 5 huge leagues in Europe, in December we already knew 4 champions. Which means one thing just isn’t proper in our recreation. The massive monetary energy of some golf equipment is mainly destroying the competitors.”
Regardless of breaking Arsenal’s switch document bringing in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Wenger blasted the funds obtainable to different golf equipment. Manchester Metropolis have spent virtually double what nearest challengers United have this season and are subsequently 15 factors forward on the high of the league.
It’s the similar story throughout a lot of Europe with PSG and Barcelona sitting 11 factors clear of their respective leagues – though Barcelona did not spend closely after the departure of Neymar – and home rivals simply cannot sustain.
Bayern Munich are 16 factors clear within the Bundesliga and have spent £116m on gamers this season, over double the £56m second positioned Bayer Leverkusen have spent.
It now seems that Serie A is the one one of many ‘huge 5’ leagues which might be aggressive this yr, with just one level separating league leaders Napoli and second place Juventus.
