Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha believes some Arsenal players have disrespected the history of the club with their recent displays.
Despite the much-needed three points they are still languishing down in 15th place in the table, and have a lot of work to do if they are to turn their season around.
“There needs to be a lot more leadership coming from the Arsenal players,” he said.
“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.”
With the January transfer window just around the corner Arsenal are expected to make at least one or two new signings to help strengthen Mikel Arteta’s side for the second half of the season.
And Saha advised them on what kind of player they should be looking for.
“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,” he added.
“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.”
The Gunners will look to build on their impressive win over Chelsea when they take on Brighton on Tuesday followed by a trip to West Brom on Saturday.
