QPR’s Harry Redknapp says Gunners must get better.
Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has labelled the current Arsenal side poor and believes the Gunners must improve this summer or face missing out on Champions League qualification next season.
Arsenal pipped Spurs to a place in this season’s top four after winning eight of their remaining ten matches to finish a point above their north London rivals.
But the Gunners were knocked out of both domestic cups to Football League opposition and were thoroughly outclassed in the Champions League last-16 first-leg against eventual winners Bayern Munich.
QPR manager Redknapp believes his old foe must strengthen this summer or face missing out on a place at Europe’s top table in the future.
“Chelsea and Man City will get better and Arsenal have got to get better too. They scraped into the Champions League this year but it’s an Arsenal team that is nowhere near some of the last 10-15 years,” Redknapp told talkSPORT.
“It’s the poorest Arsenal team I’ve seen in a few years but they still managed to scrape into fourth. I don’t think they’ll get away with that next year, they’ll need to improve in the summer.”
