When you’re the manager of a football team, you know how hard it is to properly motivate your players and how difficult it can be to keep the ball rolling. Not only that, but you have to worry about people snatching your good players up, you have to constantly come up with game winning plays and every single one of your players has a personal life that comes into play as well.
This winter, the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has struggled to prove that he has what it takes. This sent him scrambling back to the drawing board to figure out what went wrong and how he can improve for the next season. However, all doesn’t seem lost as they scored a 2-0 win over Everton and with this win, Wenger believes he has found a formula for success.
It’s not all been Plain Sailing – one of the biggest mistakes Arsenal made this season was not signing a single outfield player.

However, Wenger feels thatSterling would be a signing of no use to Arsenal at the moment since they are already extremely strong in that position.Sterling is capable of playing across the front – even as a striker – and he uses his blistering pace to great advantage.
Sterling said before the 4-1 defeat against Arsenal that he was extremely flattered to be linked with the North London outfit. It has been suggested that these comments just before the match did not help preparations and Liverpool suffered as a result of it. Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers refused to criticise the 20-year-old. Instead, he looked at the positives and it wasSterling won the penalty from which Liverpool scored the only goal of the evening. Wenger is now in a strong position after having almost secured Champions League qualification for next season as a result of this victory. It pushes them into second spot ahead of Manchester City.
