Tony Adams made Ashley Cole great not Wenger claims Arsenal legend Dixon

Tony Adams made Ashley Cole great not Wenger claims Arsenal legend Dixon”

Adding to recent criticism from other former Arsenal players, Dixon also said Wenger's influence on the development of ex-England and Gunners left-back Ashley Cole was overstated.

Lee Dixon says Tony Adams, not Arsene Wenger, deserves the credit for developing Ashley Cole into one of the game's finest defenders.

Cole came onto the scene at Arsenal as a talented prospect, and left for Chelsea already established as one of the best in his position in the world.

Lee Dixon has heaped more misery on Arsene Wenger by claiming Arsenal's under-pressure manager is "not a true coach".

Singling out Shkodran Mustafi as an example, the former England global said: "Wenger recruited some great players Kolo Toure, Sol, Thierry Henry".

'I spoke to Gary Neville (who briefly managed the Mestalla outift) who said Valencia couldn't give him away. 'I think the two-year contract was a smokescreen to try and get over the hysteria that surrounded him last season when his contract was running down.

The conversation then turned to Hector Bellerin, who Dixon believes was improving under coach Steve Bould's stewardship.

They next face AC Milan in the Europa League on March 8, a competition which is not only their last chance of silverware but also rapidly becoming their most realistic way of securing Champions League football for next year.
