Stewart Robson believes that Theo Walcott should be sold by the club

Former Arsenal man Stewart Robson has launched an extraordinary attack on Arsenal star Theo Walcott.

The forward made 46 appearances for the Gunners in all competitions scoring 11 times and is in England’s Euro 2012 squad.

“Walcott is a ‘liability’ and should be sold by Arsenal this summer if he is asking for a wage increase,” Robson told talkSPORT.

“It wouldn’t worry me if Theo Walcott were to leave tomorrow.

“Theo Walcott, for me, is not a good footballer. He is an athlete who puts on a pair of football boots.

“He is quick, he is fast, but when he was younger he should have been taught how to be better technically, how to find space, how to find awareness. He has never done that and he is a liability when he is defending.

“For Theo Walcott to want more money, I would let him go.”

The 47-year-old former midfielder made 150 league appearances for the Gunners, scoring 16 times.
