Wenger annoyed by Arsenal jeers

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has blasted those who have queried his substitution decisions following a 0-0 draw with Aston Villa, BBC Sport reports.

Gunners fans chanted against Wenger’s decision to remove striker Olivier Giroud late in their game at Villa Park and replace him with central midfielder Francis Coquelin. The result leaves Arsenal sixth in the Premier League, ten points behind leaders Manchester United. Wenger was disappointed with the reaction and unleashed his anger during his post-match press conference.

The Frenchman said: “I don’t want to comment (on those chants). I do my job and I do my best for the club. Why should I create a rift? You can discuss every substitution. You think what you want. I do my job and I let people judge it. I do that every day and I do my best every day. I know why I do it.”

Wenger also added that he felt a hectic week for the Gunners, in which they won last weekend’s North London derby with Tottenham and a Champions League tie with Montpellier in midweek, took its toll on the players. The Gunners only have three days before their next game, a tricky trip to Goodison Park to take on Everton on Wednesday night.
