Just two days after the humiliating defeat at Ewood Park, reports have surfaced that senior players in the Arsenal dressing room want an immediate appointment of a defensive coach.
If reports are to be believed, then indications suggest that the Gunners do not have a specialist in this field and although assistant manager Pat Rice is a former full-back, it seems that he doesn’t have enough experience on the subject.
However, it appears that the players are in full support of their manager, contrary to misleading reports that the Frenchman is facing the possibility of being sacked, but they have voiced their plea for a defensive coach to be appointed in order to cure the already persistent problem at the back.
Former Gunner Martin Keown is thought to be leading the race, while Steve Bould and Neil Banfield are working with the youngsters and reserves.
Only time will tell if Arsene Wenger will in fact answer the players and fans calls.
