Diego Forlan insists that Arsenal will only be serious title contenders again if Arsene Wenger leaves the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners are now 12 points off Premier League leaders Chelsea following their 3-1 loss to Antonio Conte’s men on Saturday.
And former Manchester United striker Forlan claims that people now “laugh” when Arsenal are mentioned as possible title contenders.
“Opinions are divided on [Arsene Wenger],” Forlan wrote in The National.
“It’s quite sad because he’s a brilliant football manager, but something is not working there.
“They can’t carry on without being serious title contenders until Wenger decides to quit.
“When Arsenal are talked about as title contenders, people actually laugh because they can’t see it happening.”
