Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger loses it in press conference after Olympiakos defeat

Arsene Wenger didn’t take well to questions from reporters during the post-match press conference that followed Arsenal’s surprise 3-2 Champions League defeat to Olympiakos.

The loss to the Greek champions leaves the Gunners with something of a mountain to climb if they are to make it through to the knockout stages of the competition and with back to back fixtures with Bayern Munich, it may take something of a miracle to rescue Arsenal from early elimination.

Though keeper David Ospina made a real blunder to concede one of the goals scored by Olympiakos and this inevitably led to fans and the media questioning Wenger’s decision to drop Petr Cech in preference to the Colombian, though the Arsenal boss didn’t seem willing to accept that fact,

“I do not have to sit here and give you any explanation about every decision I make.

“It’s a farce. Ospina played 19 games last season, kept 14 clean sheets. Last week at Tottenham, he had a fantastic game. No keeper is mistake-free, it could have happened to Petr Cech as well. That’s part of it.”

“If you look at the benches of the other teams in Champions League they rotate their players. You can’t play every three days without rotating your players. Its a fact and you have to accept that.” Wenger added.
