Paul Merson claims Harry Redknapp would have led Arsenal to the title

Paul Merson claims Harry Redknapp would have led Arsenal to the title

The ex-Gunner started the war of words after suggesting Harry Redknapp is more tactically astute than Arsene Wenger.

The former forward played under both managers during his playing career, although the player made a decision to leave the Gunners shortly after the Frenchman taking up his role in North London.

Tutto Mercato Web claimed earlier this week that an agreement had been reached for the 44-year-old to return to Arsenal at the end of the season.

Despite his recent struggles in the hot-seat, Merson believes the former Tottenham, QPR and Portsmouth boss can be hailed as an all-time great.

"Tactically, he's one of the best I've worked with".

Arsene Wenger needs to learn from Harry Redknapp, says Paul Merson.

But as an interview with the Boston Globe attests , he had as little love for the city of Cleveland as he did the Cavs. The All-Star point guard grew up in New Jersey, and is excited to be living on the East Coast again.

These comments have provoked the obvious reaction from Arsenal fans, who have been hysterical in their criticism of their former player, although this is hardly the first time he has come out with an outrageous comment, or more been overly biased against Wenger's side.

Redknapp's last job was at Birmingham City where he was sacked after just 13 games in charge.

Does Redknapp have any advantages over Wenger?

"Winning the league at Portsmouth". They last won the Premier League under Wenger in 2004.

'We won our first game at home and I thought we'd be alright and then went to Crystal Palace.

When asked to give his thoughts about the 49-year-old pundit coming out of retirement to play for Welsh fourth-tier team Caerau, Wenger responded: "We speak about professional football here".
