ARSENAL hero Gilberto Silva says time has run out for Arsene Wenger and he should quit as manager this summer.
Silva was a key part of the brilliant Invincibles side that went through the whole season unbeaten on the way to the 2004 Premier League title.
The Brazilian remains a huge fan of Wenger as a person and boss – but claims time has caught up on the Frenchman and he has to leave the Gunners.
Silva believes other younger managers like Antonio Conte and Jurgen Klopp are bringing new ideas to football that Wenger is struggling to adapt to.
He said: “I feel that the time has come.
“The more the past is coming to a close, the more his time is coming – not because he can’t do the job any longer, but, perhaps because the other clubs have changed their way of working, the way of doings things.
“He hasn’t changed much, he hasn’t changed his way of working – not because he doesn’t want to, but it is not so easy to compete with clubs who spend a lot of money every season.”
