Clichy: Typical Arsenal would always crumble

Istanbul BB fullback Gael Clichy has spoken of his frustrations at Arsenal.

Clichy has admitted that Arsenal used to crumble under the pressure during Arsene Wenger's reign.

In the Premier League, one match saw Arsenal race into a 4-0 lead only to end up drawing 4-4 with Newcastle.

Clichy, who took part in that game, said of it to Premier League Productions: "Yeah but this was typical Arsenal.

"We could go anywhere and play anyone off the park then all of a sudden we could crumble in just a few minutes.

"We were young, we had plenty of talent but people were talking about what we were missing and maybe that was a bit of experience.

"But that shows you what type of team we were, an amazing team but we lacked character if you want.

"Even with a lead of three goals, we could feel the fans pushing and the second goal I could feel that it was going to be difficult [to win]."
