Fulham boss Jol tells Arsenal fans: Get used to being trophyless

Fulham boss Martin Jol says being trophyless is the new reality for Arsenal.

Cottagers boss Jol, who spent three years in charge of the Gunners' arch-rivals Tottenham, suggested Arsene Wenger's men were not competing on a level playing field with Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea.

"If you look at the likes of Man City with almost half a billion spent, Man United, it's not easy nowadays," said Jol.

"Can you expect a team like Arsenal to win things, with Chelsea, Man City, Man United, all these clubs?"

Asked if supporter anger was justified, Jol said: "I don't think you have to be angry. Frustrated is probably the better word.

"Angry with Wenger? Wenger created the new Arsenal, almost.

"Maybe in three years' time, they will hope and pray to get someone like Wenger."
