Bradford boss Parkinson can't believe sack talk for Arsenal's Wenger

Bradford City boss Phil Parkinson can't believe the pressure Arsene Wenger is under at Arsenal.

Wenger is on a hiding to nothing as his Premier League giants tackle ­Parkinson’s League Two giant-killers at Valley ­Parade in the Capital One Cup.

Parkinson, who worked as an Arsenal scout before taking over at Bradford, insists: ‘‘It’s ridiculous people are talking about his future the way he’s built the club.

“The biggest prize in English football is the title, which he’s won, and then second is ­qualifying for the Champions League and they do that every year.

“If you look at the ­resources they have had compared to the two Manchester clubs it’s a great achievement – he’s done a remarkable job.”
