Former Arsenal star Ray Parlour has insisted that manager Arsene Wenger and assistant Steve Bould have a good working relationship amid claims that a rift has developed between the pair.

Earlier this month, Wenger hit out at “superficial information” after reports Bould had led a heated dressing room inquest in the wake of the 2-0 home defeat by Swansea.

Rumours of problems with their relationship, however, continue, with Bould said to have become a marginalised figure at the club’s Hertfordshire training base.

But Parlour sees no reason why the duo cannot work well together.

“Steve Bould was a real character in that dressing room area, he’s one of those sort of players that points a finger at people if you weren’t doing your jobs, and I’m sure he’s not changed,” said Parlour.

“People will speculate very quickly about training bust-ups and whatever, but whenever I’ve been there Steve Bould’s been next to Arsene Wenger and they’ve been as good as gold.

“But if that is the case that is a problem, of course.”
