Nwankwo Kanu wants to see silverware return to north London…


Arsenal legend Nwankwo Kanu stated that while he enjoys the brand of football the current crop are producing, he feels it’s now time to crown that with silverware, he told Sky Sports.

Kanu, who won a plethora of trophies during his time in north London including the 2004 ‘Invincibles’ title, revealed that he often returns to watch the team whenever he’s in the city.

Mikel Arteta’s side are currently five points off the top of the Premier League following back-t0-back league defeats which saw us slip from the summit.

After crashing out of the FA Cup last weekend to Liverpool, there now remains only two trophies up for grabs with the team set to return to Champions League action next month.

Despite the obvious progress that’s been made under Arteta in recent years, this squad does need to crown that with tangible success.

“When I’m in London, I still go to the stadium to watch Arsenal, because this is a great club and I am a part of it,” the former Nigerian international said.

“They were close last year, but this year I want them to win trophies. 

“However, you need to have the belief that you can do it. During my time at Arsenal, we had the confidence and belief in ourselves, and if this crop of players, who are playing fantastic football, can believe in themselves, they will win titles.”

With just one win in our last seven games across all competitions, Arteta will need to reset the squad’s mindset during their warm-weather camp in Dubai.

Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest await them in the Premier League later this month, two fixtures any team with serious ambition should be winning – and winning comfortably.

While the transfer window remains open, it’s not expected for Arsenal to do any business which means we must find internal solutions to our current predicament.
