Wenger is why I can’t do that – Gunner speaks out

Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny has revealed that he has been instructed by Arsene Wenger to take less shots at goal since arriving at the club.

The Egyptian has become a regular in the Gunners’ starting eleven after completing a move to the Emirates stadium from Basel in January.

But Elneny, who scored most of his goals from long-range during his time in Switzerland, has admitted that Wenger’s passing style of play has changed him.

“I used to shoot a lot when I was at Basel but sometimes that doesn’t suit our style here,” Elneny said in an interview with the May edition of Arsenal Magazine.

“[Wenger] taught me to be more of a team player and to be intelligent in terms of when I shoot. I also paid attention to my teammates and took their advice. That has helped me to improve my performances already.”
