Former Gunner Sol Campbell reckons that there are no less than ten Arsenal players that are not good enough to play for us and should leave the club.
Campbell, who now manages League Two Macclesfield, did not name any players by name apart from Shkodran Mustafi and even then he was simply saying he does not blame just the German defender but reading between the lines you get an idea of who he is talking about.
“I think there’s probably 10 players who aren’t good enough,” Campbell told talkSPORT.
“I’m not just blaming [Shkodran] Mustafi for what happened at Crystal Palace because I think it was a team thing, although he made a mistake.
“There are 10 players who Arsenal really need to look at getting out of the club.
“I think the fans need to not fall for the name on the back of the shirt.
“What the fans have to do is see what the players do on the pitch and can they fight and have the desire for the club.
“It may not be a world-class name but we got showed up by Wolves and not many people knew who these Wolves players were at the start of the season.”
Seems to me that he is clearly pointing to Mesut Ozil as one of the players that needs to be jettisoned though I could easily be reading it wrong.
But ten players, I mean, really?
That does seem a little extreme, though I suppose there are quite a few fringe players that could easily be sold but if I was to list ten players right now that I believe should be sold I would expect a few comments disagreeing with me, it really is subjective.
I can think of at least five players that we should definitely be selling but after that, I would struggle.
We do have a team of internationals and this is the first season under Unai Emery, we are in the Europa League semi-finals and have improved on last season in the Premier League.
I agree that we do need to sell some of the rubbish but for me, Campbell is overreacting a little.
What is your opinion?
