France have potential to dominate: Wenger

Beleaguered Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has come under fire from fans after Arsenal were thrashed by Bayern Munich in the Champions League and slipped out of the Premier League’s top four

LONDON, United Kingdom, Mar 28 – Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes his native France could become a dominant force in world football because they have the best players.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes his native France have the players to become a dominant force in world football.

Les Bleus made it all the way to the Euro 2016 final on home soil, only to lose to Portugal, but manager Didier Deschamps has stuck with the same core group of players that look set to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, and Wenger rates they could be the favourites in Russia.

“The upcoming force in international football for me is France. Every corner you can find a player who can play for the national team basically,” he told Bein Sports.

“When you look at players like [Monaco’s Tiemoue] Bakayoko and [Lyon’s Alexandre] Lacazette who are not even selected, that was not the case 10 years ago.

“That’s why I think France has an exceptional potential and maybe could take over.

“I’m convinced, maybe because I’m French, but at the moment the best players in the world are in France.”
