Former arsenal player defends Unai Emery and slams board over recruitment
Former Arsenal player Tony Adams has slammed the club over recruitment policy and defending under pressure boss Unai Emery over team performance.
Emery is under pressure following bad performance on EPL, he receives critics after 2-0 defeated from Leicester City.
But, rather than focus on Leicester’s superb display, Adams highlighted the issues Arsenal are enduring both on and off the pitch.
“I think it is easier to blame the manager. I don’t think he is doing himself any favours at the moment, with the captaincy situation, for instance,” he told Sky Sports.
“Today, he got them organised but they just sat back and dropped so deep. The recruitment has been very poor for some years now.
“You have got to have characters in there. There aren’t any in the squad. It is difficult for him, he hasn’t got the players. The manager must be pulling his hair out.
“We came here expecting a good hiding and they got one.
“I don’t think those players go out on the pitch and believe they will keep a clean sheet and it is infectious.”
