Premiership is in danger of a turn-off because of the negative football played by too many teams.

The Frenchman believes the onus has switched from attack to defence as a result of the neagtive tactics adopted by a number of coaches.

”I’m very concerned,” admitted Wenger.

”I feel the attraction of English football has always been positive but the trend is to attack less.

”If this is to get into the brain of football it will go downhill quickly. The cautious approach exists everywhere in The Premiership.

”If everyone refuses to play we will get nowhere. Teams are trying not to lose and there is less risk in English football.

”The grounds aren’t full, although perhaps that has something to do with the price as well.”
