Sol Campbell: Arsenal don’t have any leaders

Ex-Arsenal and Invincible, Sol Campbell has questioned the leadership and character of their Arsenal squad following their 3-1 defeat to Chelsea on Saturday, as he told Sky Sports

Arsene Wenger has come in for heavy criticism from the Arsenal fans following the defeat as Arsenal’s title challenge has virtually ended, making it 13 years since the Gunners last Premier League trophy. 

Campbell won two League titles with the Gunners, the latter being the last tthe Gunners have won under Wenger. Moreover, Campbell admitted that during his time, Wenger’s team was full of strong characters and leaders, something he thinks the current team completely lacks. 

“I don’t know what’s happening now, but when I was there we used to police it ourselves. We had the characters to police it ourselves. We didn’t allow the whole 45 minutes to go by, we would address it on the pitch because if you wait for 45 minutes and you are in, you might be 2-0 down.”

“And we had the characters you know would say something, Patrick would say something, Tony, Martin Keown, David Seaman, all these guys, from the front Thierry, Dennis Bergkamp, all these guys would chip in on the pitch while the game was going on. That’s the key, you’ve got to have those characters on the pitch.”
