Barcelona midfielder Alex Song has urged Arsenal fans to be patient with Arsene Wenger's rebuilding plans.

Song quit Arsenal last summer.

He said: "It hurts to see them now because the Arsenal players have talent and potential.

"Given all that manager Arsene Wenger has done there I don't think it's normal that the situation is the way it is today.

"New players have come in and you have to give them time to adapt - and I think that when they have adapted, things will be better."
