Arsenal hero Bob Wilson is upset over claims of rifts within the coaching staff.
Wilson has hit back at comments from former player Stewart Robson, who described Arsene Wenger as "a dictator in many ways".
There have been reports that Wenger's number two, Steve Bould, has been effectively isolated.
Wilson said: "The claims of Arsene being a dictator, and from a former player in Stewart Robson, really upsets me.
"I believe if Steve Bould is being sidelined, he is wealthy enough, sensible enough and strong enough to resign if unhappy with his role.
"To say Wenger appoints yes men is an insult to all the people who have worked under him - myself included. I always stood up to Arsene."
