Gary Neville launches scathing attack on Arsenals naive defence and labels Sead Kolasinac irresponsible

| August 12, 2017
Sead Kolasinac may have become an instant fans’ favourite on his debut against Chelsea and was part of Arsenal’s winning team over Leicester on Friday night, but Gary Neville was less than impressed with what he saw. The Bosnia international played on the left-side of a makeshift back three that looked disorganised and nervy against the counterattacking threat of Jamie Vardy and Shinji Okazaki.  But it was the 24-year-old’s role in Leicester’s opening goal from a set piece that Neville was most concerned about, labelling the Arsenal defence “naive” and Kolasinac ”irresponsible”.   Arsenal took a lead after just two minutes through Alexandre Lacazette’s headed goal, but they were pegged back almost immediately by Okazaki from a Leicester corner.

It’s poor from him.” More about: Arsenal Leicester City Sead Kolasinac Premier League Gary Neville Reuse content
