Wenger against Gunners in Olympic squad

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has spoken of his concern over the timing of the Olympic Games and is not happy about his players going to London 2012, BBC Sport reports.

Wenger faces five players being available for selection including Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey. The French manager has called the Olympics football tournament ‘not a real tournament’ and does not want his players risking injury and loss of fitness. The long-standing Gunners manager said: ‘if you look at the organisation of the whole summer, it makes life impossible for the clubs and especially for the players. At some stage, you have to decide how far you can go medically for the players to play so many games under so much pressure’, Wenger added in his press conference.
