Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has claimed Arsenal's trophy ambition are being undermined by star names who are ‘more interested in selfies and six packs’ than success on the field.

Keane pulled few punches as he offered up his thoughts ahead of the new Premier League season, as he suggested Arsene Wenger's side were a little too vain for their own good.

“They’ve lots of good players, good characters who roll their sleeves up, just not those who are trying to get their pictures every day of the week, selfies,” Keane said.

“There’s too many Arsenal players interested in selfies, I think, whatever they are. Instead of focusing on winning Premier League titles, it’s all about how their bodies look, how their hair is, more so than winning football matches, which is the way things are going.

“They’ve got good players, really good players, it’s just one or two of their players, they’re more interested in selfies and six packs.”
