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.

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.”
