Wenger: Winning FA Cup "never enough"

Gunners boss admits fans will want more

Arsene Wenger believes that winning a third FA Cup in-a-row will not be enough for some Arsenal fans.

The Gunners take on Watford in the quarter-finals at the Emirates on Sunday aiming to close in on Wembley for the third straight year.

No side has won a hat-trick of FA Cups since Blackburn way back in the 1880s but with the usual contenders for the Premier League all fluffing their lines this season, many feel Arsenal should be in pole position to pick up their first league crown since 2004.

However, it has been a case of 'same old Arsenal' this campaign with the north Londoners missing repeated opportunities to take control of the title race and they are now eight points off the pace with just nine games remaining.

And Wenger admits that the FA Cup won't hide their failure to win the league title.

“Look, it’s never enough,” he said. “As long as you don’t win everything it’s never enough. When we didn’t win anything they said you didn’t even win the FA Cup.

“People always wants more, which is normal and it’s what we want as well. If you look at the history of Arsenal we are a club who’s won it (the FA Cup) more than anybody else.

“We’ve won it 12 times. And I with my team have won it six. That means it’s not as easy as it looks.

“We have to live with exaggerations and I can do that. I honestly never believed that I was God and I’m absolutely completely conscious of that.

“But what can I do? It is a perception of other people. It is judgement. Judgements create belief. Is it right or wrong? I don’t know.

“But I know I can only make sure of one thing….I am completely committed to perform and I do my best to make sure this club does well. After that it is not down to me to judge.”
