Former Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker has identified what he believes was Arsene Wenger's biggest weakness during his time at the Emirates.

Wenger was accused of not spending enough money and recruiting more quality players towards the back end of his time with Arsenal.

Wenger joined Arsenal back in 1996 and transformed the Gunners into three-time title winners, with the most impressive moment coming during the 2003/04 campaign when the club went through the league season unbeaten.

"Wondering whether it was also his greatest weakness and whether he was too lenient with us is, in my opinion, a little too simplistic.

But the last few campaigns of his tenure saw Arsenal fall well short of the standards Wenger had set during the early years of his managerial stint in the capital.

Arsene Wenger was always the kind of manager whose belief in his team’s qualities was steady as a rock and who approached matters with never-ending patience.

Mertesacker feels that it was Wenger's trust in players who were under performing which proved to be his downfall, though the German does add that this belief in his players was a quality that was also admired in the dressing room.
