While they did technically get the job done, Keane was unimpressed. "We can talk about being a shambles but they're so slow out of the blocks - poor attitude", Keane told ITV Sport. It's not like a light switch, you can't just turn it on and off.

I don't know if you saw the game, but even if you didn't, I'm sure you know that Arsenal were hot garbage against Östersunds yesterday.

Speaking to ITV after the Gunners embarrassing2-1 defeat at the hands of Swedish side Östersunds FK in their UEFA Europa League last-32 fixture, Keane launched a scathing attack on the England global. The Gunners took a 3-0 lead into the match, but were left stunned when Ostersund scored twice in quick succession in the first-half at the Emirates. Despite previous optimism that a deal would be struck between Arsenal and the player, Wilshere is yet to put pen to paper, and Arsene Wenger is desperate for that to be sorted soon.

Arsene Wenger has responded to Roy Keane's criticism of Jack Wilshere last night.

"It's very hard. I personally rate Jack very highly. After that, you can have opinions", Wenger was quoted as saying by the Mirror.

Manager Arsene Wenger defended Wilshere in response to Keane's comments, though he conceded the England global did not play well. "Jack was in a team last night who didn't perform well so it was not easy for him as well". They won the FA Cup final against Chelsea last season when no one gave them a chance. We were nowhere near good enough.

The problem for Arsenal is that they play in a way that will suit Manchester City.
