Gary Neville slams Arsenal players for having ‘no respect’ for each other
The former Manchester United defender was left unimpressed by some of Arsenal's key players against Stoke City
Gary Neville has criticised Arsenal’s players for showing a lack of respect for each other during Saturday’s loss at Stoke City.
Arsene Wenger’s men slumped to a 3-2 defeat by the Potters at the Britannia Stadium, with a number of the Gunners’ key players coming in for criticism for their disappointing displays.
And former Manchester United defender Neville was frustrated to see a lack of support amongst the north London club’s players during the game.
“It makes my blood boil when you see players suffering on a football pitch or you see [young players] struggling,” Neville said.
“It’s your duty to sacrifice your own game and cover him. It’s your duty. Forget your own game, forget scoring goals, particularly the full-backs, I think they’re getting exposed.
“They have no respect for each other at times. Abandoning ships is a good point, but abandoning each other is unforgivable. You can’t abandon each other on a football pitch.”
