Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong is unafraid to criticise his former club.
This time last year the 22-year-old was still contracted to the Gunners before being moved onto Barnsley in January. He now plays for Russian side FC UFA.
The midfielder took to Twitter after Arsenal went 1-0 down to Anderlecht, to lay into the Gunners' transfer strategy.
Said it and will say it again we need a F****** centre back with Laurent a bloody DMF and a bloody striker— Emmanuel Frimpong. (@IAMFRIMPONG26) October 22, 2014
And before u start going down on me it's bloody true all our players are soo similar jack Ramsey arteta Chambo Sanchez Ozil all too similar— Emmanuel Frimpong. (@IAMFRIMPONG26) October 22, 2014
FFS Sanchez has had a good season but no disrespect would have been better using that to buy a centre back and a DMF bloody sick of it man— Emmanuel Frimpong. (@IAMFRIMPONG26) October 22, 2014
Frimpong's complaints centre around the club failing to sign a centre-back and defensive midfielder, common complaints among fans of the club.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger even admitted at the club's AGM he erred by failing to sign a replacement for Thomas Vermaelen.
The Ghanaian's mood will no doubt have improved by the club's late fightback, and while the win helps, it continues to gloss over the issues raised.
That, realisitically is all the club can do now until January when the transfer window opens, for now they just need to amass as many points as they can and hope the injuries clear up.
