Following their loss to Tottenham, the Gunners legend stated that the team needs better defenders in order to start winning their games.

According to

Tony Adams

,

Arsenal

are in need of “someone better” than

Hector Bellerin

. After their loss to

Tottenham

, Adams admitted that the first goal for the Spurs by Son could have been stopped had Bellerin intervened.

 "You’ve got Cedric in from Southampton, what’s that recruitment going on? You need someone who is better than Hector. Or if you think that Hector is, then work with him,"

said Adams.

"Don’t get him on the right-wing, say sit there morning and afternoon with the kid and make him a full-back. He’s no better or no worse than Lee Dixon when he came to the club, Hector Bellerin.”

"We had little Lee Dixon, he was up that right-wing playing like a right-winger. I went, 'Oi Dicko, come here. Sit here, learn your job. First and foremost, stop that ball going in the back of the net'.”

"Where was Hector when the first goal went in? He was up the pitch! Do your job first. Learn how to be a good defender, keep clean sheets and take it from there."
