Arsenal legend Parlour urges Wenger to focus on FA Cup

Arsenal legend Ray Parlour says Arsene Wenger must focus on the FA Cup.

Parlour believes the Gunners should prioritise the FA Cup over finishing in the top four.

"For me it's all about winning trophies," said Parlour, speaking on behalf of official FA Cup supporter

"I know the Champions League is important as well but if someone asks you at the end of your career what you've achieved and all you've got is coming fourth eight years running - what is that?

"'It's great for the club financially but you don't want to be a professional footballer to make money for your club - the whole objective of being a footballer is to win.

"I was lucky to win lots of trophies when I played and for the history of the club it's all about silverware.

"It would give the club a big boost for next season because all those players are good players but they need to win something together."
