A Manchester United legend blasted Arsenal for their 2-1 defeat in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday, and singled out midfielder Jack Wilshere, who he believes is nowhere near as good as fans claim.

The Gunners advanced through to the round of 16 of the competition on Thursday, winning 4-2 on aggregate.

Arsene Wenger’s side suffered a 2-1 home defeat to Swedish side Ostersunds, following a complacent and lacklustre start to the match.

Ex-Red Devils captain, Roy Keane, slammed Arsenal for their poor performance, before saying he believes Wilshere is one of the most overrated players in football.

"Arsenal are a great example of how not to start a game of football," he said on ITV.

"They are so slow out of the blocks. Poor attitude, no energy, no desire. It's not like a light switch, you can't just turn it on and off.

"A lot of that will come from the manager and his coaching staff, but ultimately it has to come from the player. You have to motivate yourself. You have your pride and you want to do well for yourself, your team-mates, your family and to turn up like that was a shambles.

"We have seen it so many times from Arsenal. They went to Nottingham Forest [in the FA Cup last month] with exactly the same attitude and lost. You make excuses for Arsenal all the time, but it’s a load of rubbish. The Arsenal players must drive you crazy. A shambles.

"You look for your senior players to lead by example…when Wilshere is your captain, to me, he is probably the most over-rated player on the planet."

His football was more like rugby. His kicking and roughing of other players was second to none. He was lucky referees then believed his team had to win everything. Comparing him to Viera, he was nowhere near him but british media made him a great just because of his color. I however concur with him on Welshere, he is just like him over hyped by the british media.
