Arsenal Manager, Arsene Wenger
Arsene Wenger has once again come out in defence of his faltering Arsenal side.
The Frenchman answered critics who claimed this is his worst ever team, after the misery of the Gunners’ worst ever start to a Premier League season was added to by their humilating exit from the Capital One Cup at the hands of League Two Bradford City.
The 62-year-old insisted he actually won more trophies with a group of players who were not as focused as his current crop at the Emirates.
Wenger told reporters at his Friday press conference: “I have had groups who had fantastic results who were less serious than these players, believe me. We won trophies with players who were less focused than this team.
“Of course these players are hurting. You think they don’t care and they go home [after Bradford] and think they had a fantastic game? They do care.
“We have not kicked on, that’s true. But we have rebuilt a team this year and we’ll see where we finish.”
