Former Arsenal star Charlie Nicholas has added to the criticism levelled at the club and its management following last weekend’s result. 

The Gunners slipped further behind in the race for a top four spot as Tottenham Hotspur crowned a dominant display with a 2-0 victory.

And according to Nicholas, that frustrating show at White Hart Lane has highlighted the desperate state of his old side.

“It is an absolute mess.” he said,  as quoted by Talk Sport

“It is not the team that is broken, it is the club that is broken. There is no leadership from anywhere and it is painful for me to see.

“This club is a mess.

“Arsene Wenger, I don’t know what he is waiting on to clarify [his future]. Please come out and tell us what is going on at the football club.

“We are not going to be in the Champion League so what are we actually facing now? I think Arsenal are facing five or six [new] players just to repair, not to even get close [to the title] again.”
