Wenger blames domination by table topping clubs in Europe’s top 5 leagues on “financial imbalance”

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, berated the state of financial imbalance among football clubs in Europe, stating it is “destroying competition.”


During a press conference on Friday, Wenger said it was clear that “something is not right in our game”, with four of Europe’s top five domestic leagues practically decided halfway through the season.

Manchester City have an 18-point lead in England, while Bayern Munich are 16 points clear in the Bundesliga.

Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain enjoy 11-point gaps in Spain and France respectively.

“When you look at the five big leagues in Europe, you can see that the unpredictability of the competition has gone down.

“In December, we already knew four champions of five leagues, so it means something is not right in our game. The huge financial power of some clubs is destroying the competition,” Wenger said.
