Arsène Wenger has developed a fresh new dance routine as an automatic reaction meme to queries about the futures of Mesut Özil and Alexis Sánchez.
So bored and contemptuous has Wenger become of constant press intrusions on the twin matters that he’s taken to actively trolling journalists by jiving right in their faces.
The Frenchman also now invites mention of the topics, dropping such conversational bait as “aren’t you going to ask me to update you all on the contractual situations of my two star players? and the same question but in French.
Speaking to Football Burp, Wenger asked us the English language version of the above question and we sportingly obliged.
He then said: “Oh no, mon ami – I have no news! Aha!
“Oh ye-eah! Oh ye-eah! Uh, uh, uh! See how I taunt you by throwing these shapes right in your face. This puts you in your place, yes?
“Allez mon ami, ask me again! Go on, encore une fois.”
Football Burp then retreated, thoroughly beaten.
