Arsenal gaffer Arsène Wenger went absolutely postal this weekend when his well-trained young charges went off the rails and got beaten 2-1 by Premier League scamps Hull City…
So offensive was his team’s display that it upset his footballing stomach. Super-chef Gordon Ramsay is known to let food drop out of his mouth, so sensitive are his tastebuds, and Wenger probably has similarly sensitive tastes in football. The Times claims that:
“Arsène Wenger has vowed to make wholesale changes to his side for tomorrow’s Champions League tie against Porto after condemning a performance that he claims left him feeling physically sick. The Arsenal manager was as angry as he has been in 12 years at the club after Saturday’s shock 2-1 home defeat by Hull City and took the highly unusual step of publicly criticising his players.” (Times)
After succumbing to such a rotten defeat, Wenger is surely determined to show his steely side to his players. A team packed with so much youthful talent always runs the risk of appearing rudderless at times, and Arsenal definitely need to bounce back against Porto.
