Alex Manninger, former Arsenal goalkeeper has deprecated the current set of Arsenal players.
The back-up goalkeeper who was at the club from 1997 to 2002 has accused them of lack of character and leadership.
The Austrian shot-stopper added that he sees nothing in the club’s current team compared to what he saw in his own teammates at the club.
He added that the current coach, Arteta has the issue of personality to address otherwise, the lacuna in the squad remains forever.
Arsenal lie bottom of the Premier League table having lost their first three games and scoring no single goal.
“I remember the player’s characters like Martin Keown, Tony Adams, Nigel Winterburn, Dennis Bergkamp, all the French players that came in and brought quality, brought leadership in. ” Manninger told talkSPORT.
“[They’re] missing that [now], missing the character of each player.”
“I think they need to look at that, they need to become a team and a hard side to beat again.”
