David Seaman says Arsenal should copy Jose Mourinho's style of play at Man Utd
Arsenal have not won the Premier League title since 2004, when they went the entire campaign unbeaten under Arsene Wenger.
The Gunners have often been criticised for playing an attractive style of football which haven't produced results in terms of trophies.
Manchester United boss Mourinho has also received negative press for his style of play at Old Trafford but he won three pieces of silverware in his first season at the club.
Seaman, who won three league titles and four FA Cups during his time at Arsenal, believes winning is more important than the way you play.
"As a player it's about winning trophies," he said on talkSPORT.

That's why I went and when I went to Arsenal we didn't play the most attractive football but it was effective football
Arsenal legend David Seaman
"It's something that I went to Arsenal for. When I was at QPR, I was offered more money to stay at QPR than I was to sign for Arsenal, but I knew Arsenal were in with a chance of winning trophies.
"That's why I went and when I went to Arsenal we didn't play the most attractive football but it was effective football and it won trophies.
"Luckily when I was at Arsenal with Arsene, we played both. It's all about winning trophies for me."

Seaman says Arsenal must focus more on the defensive side of their game, like Mourinho has, to be in with a chance of the title next term.
David Seaman has given Arsene Wenger some advice of how Arsenal can compete for major trophies
"I do think they have to tighten it up at the back, like you said it's been way too long since they won the league and they've never won the Champions League," he added.
"To have a sustained campaign, it's vital that you have a great goalkeeper and a great defence. That's what Arsenal built on years and years ago.
"He (Mourinho) is building and it's not like he's been there a few years. He's gone in there and he's won three trophies last season.
"Okay they've not played the best football but it's not negative football, it's building on a defence. We did that at Arsenal for a long time and we need to get back to that."
