Arsene Wenger Hammers New Arsenal Signing Stephan Lichtsteiner & Granit Xhaka

Arsene Wenger Hammers New Arsenal Signing Stephan Lichtsteiner & Granit Xhaka

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has delivered some pretty stern criticism to the club’s new signing Stephan Lichtsteiner, as well as midfielder Granit Xhaka.

The Frenchman departed the North London side after 22 years of service at the end of last season, and whilst he weighs-up his next move in management, Wenger is currently working at the World Cup in Russia as a pundit for beIN Sports.

He was in the studio for tonight’s Group E opener between favourites Brazil and plucky Switzerland, and his opinion on Lichtsteiner certainly isn’t one the veteran right-back will appreciate.

The 34-year-old joined Arsenal on a free transfer from Juventus earlier this summer, but it doesn’t seem as though Wenger would’ve sanctioned such a move had he still been in the Emirates hot-seat:

Is Wenger right to give a bit of stick to the Swiss pair? Is he being a tad harsh given they were up against arguably the best international side in world football?

What do you think?
