Sir Alex can feel Arsene’s pain – and he isn’t talking about hemorrhoids. The Man Utd gaffer has spoken about his sympathy for Arsene’s injury hit squad saying:
“Arsenal have had so many injury problems. If you don’t have your best players it is difficult to get the best result.
“But it is not just having your best players but having the best squad available, to enable you to change when you need that bit of freshness.” (Various)
The Lord of the Ferg also stood up against the critics who reckon that Arsene should have shelled out in January, musing:
“It just underlines how hard it is to win the Premier League. It is not easy. It is a tough league.
“It is not easy to buy players in January — there’s not a lot you can do then.” (Various)
Fergie standing up for Arsene?? Is this the beginning of a bond to rival that of Rafa and his trusty chinbeard.
