Frank Lampard Says Arsenal Lacks Character

Former Chelsea and England midfielder, Frank Lampard has questioned the character of Arsenal's dressing room following the Alexis Sanchez saga this weekend. The Chilean forward was a surprise omission from Arsene Wenger's starting line-up for Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield amid newspaper speculation that he walked out of a training session before the game.
Wenger denied that story and argued he benched Sanchez for tactical reasons before bringing him on at half-time, but Lampard said Wenger's approach has been half-hearted.

He said “I don't think they've got a particularly strong dressing room, I really don't, I don't know them all personally but when you go through it you wonder who are the strong characters in that dressing room? There might be other players that are disgruntled, ones that are in and out of the team, and when criticism starts at a club it spreads. Sometimes players make excuses or all of a sudden they don't like the manager. When you're in that position, as Arsenal are, it becomes very difficult for the manager to deal with it. He has tried to deal with it but he hasn't really drawn a big line. He's drawn a half-hearted line. Now who knows where we are with it all?”
