Arsenal boss Wenger loses rag with Merson

Arsenal boss Wenger loses rag with Merson

"People say he (Redknapp) is a wheeler-dealer and it's so disrespectful", said Merson, who played under both Wenger and Redknapp during his career.

Paul Merson has controversially claimed that Arsene Wenger would win the Premier League with Arsenal if he had "Harry Redknapp's tactical nous".

Meanwhile Wenger last won the league title in 2004 - during Arsenal's unbeaten season - and clinched the FA Cup last term.

Merson played under Wenger at Arsenal and was also under Redknapp's guidance at Portsmouth in 2002-03.

'Tactically, he's one of the best I've worked with.

And despite huge criticism of Wenger over the last to seasons, he signed a new two-year deal approved by Ivan Gazidis and the club's owners.

Reports suggest 49-year-old Merson could make a return to football with Welsh fourth-tier team Caerau but Wenger had no time for questions about lower league football when he was previewing his side's trip to Watford on Saturday (5.30pm).

Redknapp is now unemployed after a disastrous start to the season with Birmingham saw him leave the Championship club following six straight defeats. We were 33/1 rank outsiders to win the league that year.

"Harry came in at half-time and took three men off, put three at the back, five in midfield with three rolling attackers and we won 3-2".

Likely augmented by their previous coming together in 2014, it's fair to say the Frenchman didn't go easy on Merson.

"That's when I knew he was a great manager".

"Harry Redknapp has never won the league".
