HECTOR BELLERIN has taken a swipe at old boss Arsene Wenger – claiming he would send out his team with no plan on how to beat opponents.
The Gunners full-back went even further and said life at the Emirates under new coach Unai Emery feels like he is at a “new club”.
Arsenal lost their opening two games of the campaign against Manchester City and Chelsea but recovered with wins against West Ham and Cardiff.
Despite the tough start to the season, the 23-year-old insists the Gunners are heading in the right direction under the Spanish coach.
He told The Times: “It feels like a new club.
“We have so many new staff. It’s a shame for those who have gone, and I am grateful to them all.
“Some had been at the club for many years. But you can understand why a new person would like to put their own stamp on the club.
“I am impressed with Emery. We lost our first two games but we were very close both times.
“After the match, the players could feel that things were coming together.
With Arsene, he wanted us to play in the same way regardless of the opponents.
“The idea was that we could play in our way and beat anyone.
“But Emery is very focused on preparing a plan for our next opponents, whoever they may be.
“It is very detailed and very professional. The next few months are going to be very exciting for all of us. “We will reach a higher level.”
Arsenal will look to continue their good form after the international break when they face Newcastle at St James’ Park.
