Arsenal legend Frank McLintock has raised doubts over the club’s status as one of the world’s best teams and admits that ‘times have changed’ in the last few seasons.
The 72-year-old is frustrated with Arsenal’s recent transfer policies, and feels the players bought are not quite as good as the ones that have departed.
Speaking to The Sun, he said: “I’ve always regarded Arsenal as one of the biggest clubs in the world but maybe I’m wrong now.
“We seem to be selling all the time, especially to Manchester and it’s something that myself and the supporters don’t like to see.
“Maybe times have changed in the last three or four years and we’re the also-rans fighting for fourth place behind United, City and Chelsea.
“We’ve sold for a lot of money and seemed to get players who are not quite as good as the ones who have left.
“You can’t keep on doing that all the time because supporters will get annoyed and wonder why.”
