Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has named two players he regrets not signing in to the Gunners during his time at Emirates.
According to Wenger, the two players he regrets not signing for Arsenal are Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante.
The Frenchman stated this ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.
Asked which player he regretted not signing the most in an interview with Ian Wright, Wenger told LADbible: “Certainly Cristiano Ronaldo.
“I thought it was possible and if we had been a fraction quicker, a few days, because we had agreed [a deal], and Man United came in five or six days later.
“So I would say at the start of my career, Cristiano Ronaldo. At the end of my career, N’Golo Kante.”
Wenger added: “Easy, because he [Kante] played in a club in Paris called Caen, where one of my best friends is the director.
“He told me, “Please, I have a player we know is unbelievable, but nobody wants him in France.”
“He took him in his car and travelled with him from club to club and finally, a club from division three in France took N’Golo Kante.”
