Tony Adams has criticised Edu and believes the Brazilian has made Arsenal worse following their defeat Chelsea on Sunday.

Edu was appointed as Arsenal’s technical director in July and will play a major role in the club’s transfer business alongside Raul Sanllehi, who is the Gunners’ head of football.

But following Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat at home to Chelsea on Sunday, Adams suggested that Edu lacks the experience to be such a key figure at the club and admits he is ‘very worried’ ahead of the January transfer window.

‘It’s all about recruitment,’ Adams told the Premier League.

‘He’s had one year at Corinthians… South American, I’m not sure he knows the European market.

‘I’m very worried, it must be said… the hands of the club and the recruitment are in the hands of Raul [Sanllehi] and Edu.

‘And judging by the last window we didn’t get the appropriate players, we made the team worse.’

The defeat to Chelsea leaves Mikel Arteta still searching for his first victory since he was appointed as Arsenal manager last week but Adams has urged the Gunners hierarchy to fully back the Spaniard.

‘Steve Bould told me during his five years at Arsenal and he spent most of his time with the technical analysts looking at players,’ said the former Arsenal captain.

‘He’s more a coach than he is actually a player during those five years.

‘He’s totally obsessed with the game and if there’s a man who can do it… I’ve got to be a little bit positive here.

‘He’s very, very conscientious about the players and the staff he wants so hopefully he has a big say in who he wants to bring in.’
