Barry Fry has called on Mikel Arteta to bolster his squad in order to stop Arsenal’s decline.
The Gunners will be without European football for the first time since 1995 after finishing in a disappointing eighth place in the Premier League standings last season.
However, Arteta remains in the dugout and will be tasked with getting the Gunners back into Europe.
Peterborough United director of football Fry insists Arteta must be backed in the transfer market if Arsenal are to return to their former glory days.
He exclusively told Football FanCast: “Arsenal are another team that should put their hand in their pocket and back the supporters by getting some proper players in.
“They’re another team, in my opinion, like Spurs, that are going backwards instead of forwards.”
