Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has launched another stinging attack on Arsenal, describing them as “weak”, “soft” and “lacking winners”.

The Gunners are staring at elimination from the Champions League group stages after losing both of their opening two matches.

Arsenal went down 2-1 to Dynamo Zagreb in their first game before losing 3-2 at home to Olympiacos on Tuesday night.

“Listen, they’re soft – Arsenal are soft,” Keane, working as a pundit for ITV, said.

“They’re weak. The goals they give away, you’ve got no chance of winning any big game if you defend like that.

“I think there’s certainly a weakness to the group, they look like they lack characters, leaders and winners.

“I enjoy watching Arsenal, I think they’re great to watch, particularly going forward. But part of football is, unfortunately, is defending. And mentally, they’re weak.”
