Ian Wright is clearly struggling to move past the disappointment of Arsenal losing the Premier League title to Manchester City on the final day of the season.

The Gunners came close to winning the title yet again, echoing last season, after going neck-to-neck with the defending champions during the entire campaign.

Heading into the final round on Sunday, only two points separated the Citizens and Arsenal, with the London-based club needing a slip-up from City to clinch the title.

However, despite the Gunners ending their campaign with a 2-1 victory over Everton, Man City defeated West Ham United 3-1 to wrap up a fourth successive Premier League title.

Wright, an Arsenal legend, took to social media to express his frustration, posting a popular meme of a South African coach, Kgoloko Thobejane and his famous 'football can kill' quote.

Wright, a former England and Crystal Palace attacker, was one of numerous Arsenal fans who were left heartbroken at the end of the campaign.

Meanwhile, Manchester City made history by becoming the first team to win the Premier League title four times in a row, as reported by ESPN.

Manchester City crowned champions of England

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Manchester City made Premier League history after beating West Ham to clinch the 2023-24 Premier League title on May 19.

After beating Tottenham Hotspur in midweek to reclaim the top spot from the Gunners, Pep Guardiola's charges were just 90 minutes away from a new record.

Arteta vows to challenge for title again

Sports Brief also reported on Mikel Arteta making a Premier League title promise to Arsenal fans after losing the crown to Manchester City for the second season running.

The Spaniard was hoping to end the Gunners' long wait for the trophy this term after an impressive run of form but the Londoners once again fell short just before the finish line.
