Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confessed that title rivals Leicester City have won the hearts of the football-loving public in England and they want to see the Foxes lift the title this season.
The Claudio Ranieri’s men showed their title credentials with a comprehensive 3-1 away win against favourites Manchester City at the Etihad yesterday.
Although, Arsenal had defeated them at the King Power Stadium already this season, Wenger believes that the energy from fans could push the minors through and they are a great example of a modest football club.
“The advantage they have until the end of the season, apart from our fans and the City fans and Tottenham fans, the rest of the country is behind Leicester,” he said.
“You reproach me about not buying big names but you will support the team who have no big names.
“I think it’s great to see Leicester doing so well.
“You always ask me, ‘Why do you not buy a big-name?’ but Leicester is a fantastic example that football is not only about just spending the money.
“It’s the quality of work and it’s important to think that the quality of the work can get you there. Leicester are a very good example for our league.”
Arsenal will try to close the gap on Leicester City when they travel to face Bournemouth later today.
