Wenger style still the same: Pires

Villareal midfielder Robert Pires claims not much has changed at Arsenal since his departure almost three years ago.

Pires swapped north London for Spain in the summer of 2006 after expressing his dissatisfaction at playing a reduced role under boss Arsene Wenger.

But the former France international is still a fan of Arsenal’s attacking brand of football.

He said: "Their playing style is still the same but that’s normal because Arsene is still in charge.

"It is a team which is always on the move. They are also a team with spirit. They haven’t lost in the Premier League for three months."
