Clichy fears Arsenal lack senior leadership

Arsenal defender Gael Clichy fears they lack senior leadership.

Clichy admits the Gunners' young team would benefit from having a Sol Campbell-type in the dressing room.

He told the Sunday Times: "I'll talk personally, this is my point of view: it's easier for a player to play his first games when there are people around like Sol Campbell, Lauren, Henry, Patrick Vieira - how it was for me. You know those players will do the work and win the game, you just do your job.

"Now it's more difficult because if you put Jack Wilshere there, he's got so much quality and everyone expects him to do something great but, because the squad is short, we don't have those (experienced) players to do the work."
