Edu slammed by Wright for Willian ‘time’ claim as Arsenal icon demands more from Brazilian

 The former Gunners striker says a proven Premier League performer was acquired to hit the ground running, not ease his way into form at the Emirates

Ian Wright has taken aim at Arsenal's technical director Edu, with the Gunners legend baffled as to how those at Emirates Stadium can be saying that Willian – a proven Premier League performer – needs “time” in which to settle and produce his best.

The north Londoners were believed to have pulled off quite a coup when prising an experienced Brazil international away from London rivals Chelsea.

A few eyebrows were raised at handing the 32-year-old a three-year contract , but he is a two-time title winner in England and was expected to slot seamlessly into the fold under Mikel Arteta.
