Club legend: I can't understand why Arsenal players just do not react


Club legend Martin Keown says he wants Arsenal players to be more passionate on the pitch.

The 49-year-old was speaking after the Gunners edged past Newcastle United by 1-0 on Saturday afternoon.

He believes that Arsenal players should be putting more pressure on referees and be more determined in protecting each other.

"I think they're a little bit nice," Keown is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

"[Former Arsenal manager] George Graham said to us 'you're too nice'. You need to get round the referee, get round the players, protect your mates, and I can't understand here why Arsenal players just do not react.

"Now, Arsene Wenger might call me a little bit crazy here, but I feel that, if you're gonna kick me, then I'm gonna kick you and I'm gonna go and protect my team-mate.

"I see no Arsenal player reacting [when Moussa Sissoko fouled Nacho Monreal], no-one's going near it.

"It was only this one here suddenly [when Francis Coquelin was fouled by Florian Thauvin], the players were getting fed up, Coquelin, and (Alexis) Sanchez now reacts in the way that I would expect.

"Get round the referee and complain and be together as a group."
