Arsenal scout Gilles Grimandi has slammed Thierry Henry and Martin Keown for constantly slamming Arsene Wenger.

The Frenchman has come under seriously pressure after losing fourth consecutive loss.

And club legends Henry and Keown have been quick to criticise their former boss in recent weeks.

But Grimandi has told the former stars to show Wenger the respect he deserves.

“It makes me sad because guys like Thierry or Martin, I like them, I have a good relationship with them, but some of them take a sensationalist path and I don’t like that,” he told L’Equipe.

“I want to say three things to all the former players who have become pundits.

“Firstly, you mustn’t have a short memory — they owe a lot to Arsene, and they have sometimes done all they can to get back into the club after the end of their playing career.

“Also, they should respect Arsene’s commitment to the club, the fact that he works like a madman every day.

“Arsene takes strategic decisions for Arsenal every day.

“Finally, I want to say to them: ‘Get stuck in! Today, you’re in a judgemental role, but commit yourselves to a club and you’ll see it’s not simple.'”
