Reports are out claiming that Arsenal legend Lauren has claimed that the North London club has been reduced to a ‘money-making machine’.
The former right-back, who won two Premier Leagues and three FA Cups with the North London club and was a part of the legendary ‘Invincibles’ squad, suggests silverware has taken a back seat to raking in the pounds.
Lauren touched on the late Pat Boyle whose responsibilities included helping new arrivals settle at the club and believes the unity has been lost at the Emirates in recent years.
“Now Arsenal is a money-making machine and that closeness has been lost,” he told Spanish outlet AS. “It’s understandable.
“Pat Boyle used to come to collect me and he was one of us.
“Nowadays there are so many departments that it’s difficult to know everyone personally.”
