Wenger on upcoming English talent at Arsenal

Arsene Wenger believes he can no longer be criticised for the lack of English presence in his Arsenal squad, citing a few future stars as proof:"Jack Wilshere has the potential to be a great player but he has it all to do," said Wenger. "I believe he will, I believe Theo will be a great player and I think Kieran Gibbs will be a great player. "For once England cannot reproach me for not dealing with English players - maybe in the end we will have more players in the national team than any other club"We have a few coming behind as well, look at the team who won the Youth Cup convincingly last year with Jay Thomas, Sanchez Watt, Henri Lansbury and Gavin Hoyte. We have many players coming behind."For once England cannot reproach me for not dealing with English players. Maybe in the end we will have more players in the national team than any other club." The Arsenal boss also brushed aside the usual skeptism of his side before a league season commences:"To rate our potential, look at our pre-season games. We are a team who has a way to play and we are a team who are ready to fight."Let's have a go. Let's not talk too much. We know that people are sceptical about us but I let people talk. Let's win the games." "Hopefully we will surprise many people."Wenger was speaking at the launch of Arsenal's charity of the season.
