You need Cristiano Ronaldo – Ian Wright tells Arsenal
Ian Wright, a former England international, believes Cristiano Ronaldo is exactly the type of player Arsenal requires.
Ronaldo scored a hat-trick to help Manchester United beat Norwich City 3-2 at Old Trafford on Saturday, according to Wright.
Arsenal lost 1-0 to Southampton on the same day due to a lack of goals, but the Portuguese legend won another match for Manchester United.
Arsenal has struggled to score goals recently in general; they have scored just two goals in their previous five Premier League games, four of which they have lost.
And Wright criticised Arsenal's lack of a player in the mold of the former Real Madrid and Juventus star.
“He [Cristiano] has got 13 points alone from winning goals that he’s scored for them. That’s what you get at Man United,” Wright told Premier League Productions.
“That’s exactly what Arsenal need, because if he wasn’t playing for United, they’d be nowhere near where they are.
“That’s what you pay for and that’s what he’s delivered, he’s amazing,” he added.
