Unlike his own career, which has seemingly gone into terminal decline since leaving the Gunners, Reyes believes the Gunners are finally poised to reclaim a major trophy this season.
He told the Sunday Mirror: “Of course people are disappointed that Arsenal have gone so long without winning a trophy.
“There is pressure building on them to deliver but I am convinced it will come to an end this season. They have a strong squad of players who gained valuable experience playing together over a number of years and you can see from their results that the patience Arsene Wenger has with them is finally about to pay off.
“Wenger is smart, an exceptional coach who loathes losing and remains deeply ambitious. There is no real pressure on him other than that he puts on himself because the vast majority of Arsenal supporters and the club’s board worship him.
“He’s so unique in his thinking as well. No other club could assemble a young team like he has and unearth the talent he has brought to the club.
“He is in his element and captains a side with vast potential.
“Arsenal’s brand of football may have failed to land them trophies in recent seasons but that is about to come to end.
“I would be worried about them if I was Manchester United or Chelsea.”
