Arsenal legend Ian Wright will be stunned by Arsenal’s woes when get gets out of the I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here jungle, believes David Seaman.
Much has changed at the Emirates Stadium since Wrighty first went into the Australian rainforest in November.
Unai Emery was sacked as manager last week after overseeing a run of seven games without victory, which was extended to eight as they drew with Norwich on Sunday in Freddie Ljungberg’s first game as interim boss.
It is the club’s worst run of results in 27 years – which has left them eighth in the Premier League table, with rivals Tottenham, Wolves and Sheffield United now above them.
And yet Wright – one of the most vocal Arsenal legends in his work as a TV pundit – has no idea about the tumultuous times at his former club.
Seaman joined the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast on Monday to reflect on the situation at the Emirates Stadium.
And asked if it hurts to watch his former club struggle, the former goalkeeper said: “Oh it does, it really does.
“You see the lads on TV now like me and Martin Keown, and Wrighty… and by the way, what’s Wrighty going to think when he comes out of the jungle?
“He’s going to be like, ‘what has gone on?!’
“It does hurt. When we were there we were expected to win trophies, not just go for the top four.
“The fans were told moving to the Emirates to be a bigger and better club and things haven’t worked out.
“There’s a lot of stuff that needs sorting out, obviously the manager but the team needs sorting as well.
“We just look so bad at the back and it’s frustrating that nothing has been done.
“And we’re not just leaking goals, we’re giving so many chances away as well. It’s embarrassing.”
