Sky Sports pundit, Graeme Souness, has insisted former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, should take some blame for Mohamed Elneny’s poor defensive skills.
Souness was speaking following the Gunners’ 1-0 defeat to Burnley on Sunday evening.
In their last five Premier League games, the side of Mikel Arteta is now without a win.
Arsenal had Granit Xhaka sent off and were lucky to see Elneny remain on the pitch after he shoved James Tarkowski’s face during a corner.
Souness has now slammed the club’s coaching staff, including Wenger, for failing to teach Elneny how to defend at set-pieces.
“That has to go back to Arsene Wenger. He signed him,” he said.
“Whoever signed him and worked with him for a period of time.
“Him or his coaches have got to say this is how you mark.”
