The Gunners boss is clearly not a fan of Greg Dyke’s proposed changes – as recently reported in the Daily Mail – to give more chances to young English players, saying that the increased number of foreign signings is not the issue holding back the national team.

The Frenchman, who has previously been criticised for not having enough English players in his team but who now fields the likes of Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Calum Chambers on a regular basis, also pointed to the success of talented young players like Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane in recent times, stating his belief that if the players are good enough to get into the team, they won’t be held back by the presence of foreign counterparts.
