Harry Redknapp complains about Wenger’s relationship with Steve Bould: This is the problem
Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has questioned Arsene Wenger’s willingness to receive help from his assistant manager.
The Gunners boss has been lauded for almost single-handedly changing the identity of the club since his arrival more than two decades ago.
However, Wenger has also been cirticised over the years for having too much control, especially when it comes to key decisions about the Arsenal team.
And according to Redknapp, the Frenchman has to seek more assistance when needed.
“What bothers me a bit with Arsene a little bit, I think he is a complete one-man band,” the ex-Spurs boss said on BBC Radio 5 Live.
“I don’t see him looking to anybody for help or advice or another opinion. I see him sitting on the touchline and I never see Steve Bould get up, I never see him get on the touchline showing that enthusiasm if things are not going well, pushing the back four up, doing whatever, talking to somebody.
“He sits there Steve Bould and it really doesn’t look like there great deal of dialogue going on between them.
“Maybe when you get to that age, I think you need one or two younger guys around you that have great enthusiasm as well and bounce some opinions off of people and get some ideas.
“I don’t know whether he gets that or wants that help. It looks to me that nobody has any input into Arsenal except Arsene.”
