Arsene Wenger is a manager known for his frugality in the transfer market. After being bombarded by critics following the 2014 transfer window for not strengthening enough areas of the Arsenal squad with new players,
many Arsenal fans even wanted Wenger out.
The French ‘boss’ in North London is a renowned coach across European football, but the problem is that only some aspects of his transfer policy are equally renowned. Wenger is known for making profit in the
market, especially by getting the best out of younger, partly unknown to-be stars like Samir Nasri, Thierry Henry, and Cesc Fabregas for example .He’s made good money at times for Arsenal, but he obviously does so by being frugal, which can be for either good or bad.
However, in his and Arsenal’s case, Wenger’s frugality ( metro.co.uk ) has seemingly been for the worse over the past 10 years or so.

In his remark :
“It is completely crazy if you cannot afford to pay it. If you can afford to pay it you can justify it,” Wenger said.
