Emirates boss says El Capitan’s words were taken out of context.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says Cesc Fabregas’ interview was taken out of context and knows he still has his captain’s support.
The 23-year-old told Don Balon that Arsenal must choose between winning trophies and developing youth players.
The Spain international also said Wenger would have got the sack if he was in charge of Spanish club and not a won a trophy for six-years like at Arsenal.
Fabregas did come out the following day and explain his quotes had been distorted.
“Incredible that people try and twist everything to make headlines,” he wrote on Twitter. “Arsene Wenger has had a huge impact on me and my career. Great man.”
Wenger cliams the original article in Spain misrepresented Fabregas and the author reneged on an agreement to provide the club with the chance to approve the piece.
“The article bothers me,” Wenger said. “This was an article organised by the club with a check viewing of the article.
“Not only did the author not respect the agreement, but also he did twist completely the article and we are really upset about it.
“It was not an attack on my philosophy. That is not what he [Fabregas] said. He said completely the opposite.”
