Emmanuel Petit has torn into Arsenal in a scathing attack on his old club by branding their recent recruitment 'ridiculous' and slamming senior players for acting like they're on 'vacation'.

Mikel Arteta's side have been heavily criticised all season and were ridiculed in brutal fashion at the weekend after their 3-0 drubbing against Liverpool, with Jamie Redknapp pillorying Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for doing 'nothing' and Gary Neville saying they were so woeful that he and commentator Martin Tyler could've played in defence for Jurgen Klopp's men.

Now Petit, 50, who spent three years playing for Arsenal between 1997 and 2000, has laid the boot in even more by questioning the attitudes of Arteta's senior players and insisting that half the squad needs to be sold.

Speaking to Ladbrokes at its launch of the 5-A-Side Bet on Crystal Palace v Chelsea, Petit said: 'I still believe they have some quality players available to them - do I think they have many quality players? No. They have a good group of young players, though that are still learning.

It shouldn't be at a club like Arsenal that the younger players are the only ones showing passion, fight and aggression.

'If you took away the name 'Arsenal' and looked at that group of players... average.

The World Cup winner believes Arteta is being too stubborn as well, and needs to be 'realistic' about the level of his players.
