GOOD MORNING ARSENAL FANS
Alexandre Lacazette has been slammed for his attitude in a pre-match warm-up.
The French striker had his boot laces undone while swapping passes with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang before Arsenal’s 2-0 win at Southampton.
Former Liverpool and Atletico Madrid forward Florent Sinama-Pongolle, a pundit for French TV, said: “Lacazette is a substitute and doesn’t have his laces tied up – these are the little things that you have to guard against and be careful about.
“These little things unfortunately speak about the attitude and the team spirit at the moment.
“Arteta’s not their father and he can’t be a cop who’s behind them all the time – they’re professional players who have an image to give off and these are things that you have to sort out very, very quickly.”
Meanwhile, Man Utd, Barcelona and Real Madrid have got the green light to go for outcast Matteo Guendouzi – after Mikel Arteta suggested he could be on the way out at the Emirates.
Guendouzi was dropped by Arteta for the trip to Southampton on Thursday following his antics and ill-discipline in the defeat to Brighton.
The Gunners chief publicly rebuked the Frenchman, who in turn reportedly suggested he could quit North London.
And Tottenham have joined the race with Arsenal and Chelsea for Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes.
Spurs have launched a £27million bid for the player to try and grab him from under the noses of their London rivals and Italian side Napoli, according to football website Fichajes.net.
The 22-year-old Brazilian centre-half has made 24 appearances for the French side this season.
