Former player and current French head scout Gilles Grimandi has hit out at the fans for not understanding the position Arsenal are in given big spending Chelsea and Manchester City.

Speaking to the Daily Mail the 41 year old said.

‘The fans want us to bring in star names, but they don’t all grasp our economic limitations. There are no proven big stars currently on the market, besides we are not competing on a level playing field with Manchester City and Chelsea. Our means are limited by comparison and our pay structure prevents us going crazy when we sign players.’

Well that’s nice to know then.
