David Seaman has called out Arsenal defense to be embarrassing while addressing the team’s problems.

In order to regain the winning mentality that they used to have, Arsenal appointed Freddie Ljungberg, the player who contributed to their ‘invincible’ season, as their head coach. Although its too early to make decisions, Ljungberg’s initial impression was not good as Arsenal remained winless.

Arsenal’s legendary goalkeeper David Seaman feels that his former teammate needs to work on a lot of things before the team can regain their form. Seaman also insisted that he was frustrated to see the Gunner’s lack of improvement in their backline.

“It does hurt. When we were there we were expected to win trophies, not just go for the top four,” Seaman told talkSPORT.

“The fans were told [Arsenal were] moving to the Emirates to be a bigger and better club and things haven’t worked out.

“There’s a lot of stuff that needs sorting out, obviously the manager but the team needs sorting as well.

“We just look so bad at the back and it’s frustrating that nothing has been done. And we’re not just leaking goals, we’re giving so many chances away as well. It’s embarrassing,” David Seaman said.
