Wenger: We Are Better Than Papers Make Us Out To Be

by David on March 30, 2014

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has defended his players by insisting they’re not as ‘terrible’ as the press make out.

The Gunners have come in for heavy criticism in recent weeks having been on the wrong end of humiliating scorelines at Liverpool (5-1) and Chelsea (6-0), as well as exiting the Champions League against holders Bayern Munich.

And it looked as if they might be in for another sizeable reverse when Manchester City took a first-half lead at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday evening.

But The Gunners responded to falling behind and claimed a deserved point when Mathieu Flamini struck in the second half.

And Wenger, whose side are five points behind leaders Chelsea, said:

‘We have had some good performances this year.

‘Of course, if you read the newspapers, you can’t believe that.

We are in the semi-final of the FA Cup and knocked out Liverpool, Everton and Tottenham to get there.

‘In Europe, we lost to Bayern Munich with 10 men and drew 1-1 at Bayern – you don’t do that if you are terrible.’

Definitely, telling people that the players are terrible is misleading. Man City was also exited from CL and FA can you say they are terrible? No!! But I would say they are surprising us. They concede to many goals when it happens so. Bu generally, I think they (Arsenal) are too much criticized for nothing. People should consider the quality of the squad compared to other top 4 teams. The only man I blame is Wenger by not adding quality in the January transfer window!
