Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he is disappointed with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger’s decision to field a weakened side at Olympiacos in Tuesday night’s Champions League clash.
The defeat, gaaaahhh!, consigned the Gunners to second place in group B, thus opening up the possibility – nay, absolute bloody certainty – of facing Barcelona in the next round.
Speaking exclusively to Football Burp, Wenger said that although he agreed with Wenger’s decision to rest key players with a view to kickstarting Arsenal’s poor Premier League form, he was disappointed that Wenger had effectively doomed the side to a demoralising exit in the next round.
Wenger said: “Wenger cannot criticise the players because Wenger picked the team, but Wenger should have shown more focus on what could have been a lucrative Champions League campaign.
“I’m not really sure where I’m going with this.”
