Arsenal legend Santi Cazorla, who plays for Villarreal after returning from his long-term injury, has revealed the reason behind Arsene Wenger’s inability to win many Premier League trophies during his 23-year spell at the Emirates Stadium.

The former Arsenal manager stayed 13 years without winning England’s most precious trophy before he parted ways with the team last season.

The last time Wenger lay hold on the English trophy was in 2004-05 season when he led his players to an unbeaten run to the title. Since then, the Gunners have always settled for a place in the top-four teams.

In his reaction to what was responsible for Wenger’s trophy drought, the 33-year-old midfielder told football Focus that the team lacked self-confidence.

According to the Spaniard, Wenger is a great coach but he didn’t believe in himself neither does he charge his players to trust in their ability to compete with top Premier League clubs for the title.

“To believe that we were capable of competing with the big sides in the Premier League and not just settling for third or fourth.” he said.

Having said that, Cazorla further calls on the Gunners faithful to be patient with Unai Emery’s team. He charged them to support the former Sevilla boss because he has all it takes to lead the team to greatness.

“But everyone really does have to be patient,” he said.

During his six years at the Emirates Stadium, Cazorla helped the Gunners to two FA Cup glories having played more than 200 matches with the team.
