Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger declared he was not upset with the comments of captain Cesc Fabregas after the Manchester United game.
The Spaniard said how the Gunners are scared of losing in big games days after the manager was saying how there is no psychological issue when the Gunners face the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea. And speaking ahead of tomorrow’s important clash at the Emirates, Wenger said how Fabregas’ remarks were a fair assessment because the midfielder is a winner and always honest in his conclusions.
In fact, according to the Frenchman, Arsenal can no longer hide in front of the truth as that is the only way of how problems can be corrected.
Asked about Chelsea’s form, Wenger admitted he is surprised they dropped so many points in the last month as they looked “unbeatable” in the first part of the season with the Arsenal boss however believing the Blues are a strong side and still title contenders.
Ahead of tomorrow’s game, he said:
When you are conscious of something you can do something about it. That’s why I believe it’s quite a fair assessment. I’m not unhappy he has said that because Cesc is a winner.
The most important thing for the top-level teams and players is to have an honest and fair assessment. With that you can correct it. If you hide in front of the truth you can never correct it.
I am surprised how things have gone for [Chelsea] because they looked unbeatable for a long time. But they remain a strong side.
