Arsenal legend Pires: Wenger must buy English

Arsenal legend Robert Pires says his old club lack quality English players.

The French former midfielder, 39, has urged boss Arsene Wenger to sign a hard core of English players.

Pires, who ended a six-year spell with the Gunners in 2006, said: "The difference between Arsenal today and my generation is that we had a backbone of English players.

"The club has some very good youngsters now but they lack experience.

"The only solution for Arsenal is to buy some English players."
