Jérémie Aliadière has slammed Arsenal for allowing Aaron Ramsey to leave on a free because they struggle to attract the best players in the world.
The former Gunners striker came through the ranks at Highbury in his early career, playing alongside the likes of Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry in north London.
Aliadière in an interview with talk sport has expressed his anguish towards arsenals decision to let Ramsey leave on a free. Quoting him he says “It pains me every time I get to the Emirates and I see lately how well he is performing, knowing he won’t be there next season.
“Having such a talent – and he is a team player – he will work for the team, he will do anything for the team before himself.
“He will see the benefit of the team.
“And just losing a player like this on a free, for me, is criminal.
“Arsenal has become a club which doesn’t attract too many top players because you just don’t really know what direction they are going in.
