Wenger Gives Ridiculous Excuse After Defeat to Man United and Responds to Van Gaal’s Antics

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has claimed that fans shouldn’t go “overboard,” as Manchester United have spent a lot of money and had a lot of experience in their midfield. 

A Marcus Rashford double on his Premier League debut, along with Ander Herrera’s strike, gave Louis van Gaal’s injury-hit side a 3-2 win over Arsenal, denting the Gunners’ title hopes in the process. Wenger’s side now sit five points behind Premier League leaders Leicester City.

In his post-match press conference, Wenger was keen to highlight that the Dutchman contained an experienced midfield and had spent a lot of money, resulting in their loss.


“Let’s not got overboard. They had a very experienced midfield and spent a lot of money,” the Arsenal boss said.

“They stopped us a lot with little fouls, that was frustrating, I could not question our commitment or desire.

“We lost three points, but we have to show we are up for the fight. Yes, their strikers were young, but they had quality.”

When asked about his thoughts on Van Gaal’s ‘dive’, a frustrated Arsene Wenger gave a smile but refused to comment.
“You will have to ask him the question. I do not want to comment on that because you will say I’m a bitter loser – I am, in fact.”
