Tottenham Hotspur stalwart Teddy Sheringham has piled the pressure on Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger by saying the Gunners must end their nine-year silverware drought this season.
The ex-England international insisted the north London outfit can no longer be content with simply finishing in the top four every season and qualifying for the Champions League, claiming they must set their sights higher. Sheringham, who had a number of run-ins with Arsenal during two spells at Spurs, is impressed with the style of play adopted by Wenger during an 18-year reign but thinks he is under pressure to lift the FA Cup after falling behind in the title race.
The Gunners lost 6-0 to leaders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and trail them by seven points. Sheringham told Sky Sports 1 show Goals on Sunday: “Without a doubt they need to win something. “It is all well and good finishing in the top four every year and saying ‘we are still getting money and we are a big club financially’, but the fans want to see prizes, trophies, and travel to FA Cup finals. “They want to celebrate with their team and not talk about money in the bank. ”
