Gary Breen believes that Arsenal have the 'weakest group of players' and that the culture is 'rotten' - after the Gunners' 3-0 home loss to Manchester City.
Breen was speaking on Off The Ball, following a comprehensive defeat against the champions that had them three goals down after 40 minutes and in cruise control for the second half.
Arsenal: beyond repair?
With Arsenal on the lookout for a new manager, any prospective coach would have genuine concerns over the mental strength of this squad - and Breen believes that he knows why.
"They are the most self-rewarding group of players I have ever seen - I genuinely mean that - and they are the weakest group I have ever seen," said Breen.
"If you think about the selfies that time [at the Emirates] when they beat Leicester in the season that Leicester won the league, they thought they had won the league. Selfies in the changing room, celebrating and jumping around - they literally had the champagne out.
"They ended up finishing ten points behind Leicester. This is the problem that you have - there is a culture at Arsenal that is rotten.
"That is not to say that they aren't great guys or good footballers, because they are, but as a collective it is rotten. It really is."
As for the match itself, Breen believes that Freddie Ljungberg needs to take his share of the blame for the performance, and cited a previous match as evidence.
"If you look at the goal that [Teemu] Pukki scored against Arsenal [...] the camera pans to Ljungberg, [Per] Mertesacker and another coach looking at a tablet, reviewing the goal.
"No-one says a word - it was like they were in a cinema. No reaction, no debate amongst them, no reaction from Ljungberg to get up and demand from his team. So passive.
"That passive nature is a reflection of his team."
