Arsenal flops accused of disrespecting club’s history

Arsenal have endured a rough start to the season, and are still 15th in the Premier League table despite their 3-1 win over Chelsea.

The Gunners are still just six points above the relegation places, and are at risk of falling seriously behind in the race for European football.

Mikel Arteta has struggled to get his team to play with any consistency, and has tinkered around with his side throughout the season.

The club’s highest earner Mesut Ozil is still in exile after being axed from both the Premier League and Europa League squads.

Reports suggest the squad is divided over Ozil’s treatment, with some believing he should return to the frame in January.

And Louis Saha believes Arsenal’s players have let the manager down by showing poor attitude this season, and that Arteta needs players who will show aggression and leadership.

“Players have disrespected the history of Arsenal Football Club,” he said to Ladbrokes at its launch of the 5-A-Side Bet on Tottenham v Fulham'.

“There needs to be a lot more leadership coming from the Arsenal players.

“Yes, results are very important, but there have been a few occasions where players have disrespected the history of Arsenal Football Club.

“I'm not here to judge, but some of the attitude I've seen from their players is just not acceptable for a club of that stature.

“In terms of where Arsenal can strengthen, I would stop looking at players solely for their quality and start looking at players for their leadership and attitude.

“They need players who are aggressive in the right way; that's the most important thing.

“Another player in the centre of the pitch with the right mentality would be a good starting point for the January transfer window.”
