FORMER Arsenal striker Ian Wright has accused Arsene Wenger of failing to truthfully address the club's current plight and believes any other manager would have been sacked for going so long without success.

Wright says Wenger "does not tell the truth" when assessing his team's performances and also branded supporters of the 63-year-old "deluded" for standing by him throughout the club's barren spell.

The result of the Champions League match between Juventus and Chelsea last Tuesday has remained very dismal to fans and supporters of Chelsea football club, England.

The first leg ended two goals on either side.
