Lord Sugar delivers shock verdict on Arsenal after Twitter exchange with Piers Morgan
Former Tottenham chairman Sir Alan Sugar has said that relegation could be on the cards for Arsenal once they appoint their new manager, in a Twitter exchange with Piers Morgan.
The Gunners manager Arsene Wenger only announced that he would be stepping down from his post at the end of the season on Friday, creating a great deal of speculation as to who will be in line to replace the Frenchman.
And it would seem that Morgan and Sugar also wanted to talk about what it would mean for the north London club.
The two regularly snipe at one another across the social media platform about the two clubs they are associated with.
And after the TV host proclaimed on his official account that he wanted Wenger out of the club back in 2008, the telecoms tycoon took aim with his response and said on Twitter, “Shut it will you. Lets see what you will be saying next season when a £10m a year ex Carlos Kickaball will be you new manager and you will romance with relegation.”

For those haranguing me about Wenger, let me remind you that I've been saying since 2008 we wouldn't win the League with him again…. and I was right. #afc

This very much sounds like two little boys arguing about who’s the best in the playground. It’s very unlikely that under new management Arsenal will be dallying with relegation and the truth is that almost exactly the opposite will be on the cards. Wenger has been holding the Gunners back and with him out of the way, it’s more likely that it will give the club the push it needs to progress and become one of the top sides in the Premier League once again.
