Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was visibly upset with how Don Balón publishing an interview with captain Cesc Fabregas.
Speaking in his Bolton pre-match press conference, the Frenchman confirmed the words of the midfielder were twisted and when asked about the audio file made available by the website he replied by saying that he will not listen to the file as an agreement made between the Club and the website was not respected.
During the press conference, the Arsenal boss did not look open to discuss the interview and whether the words of the captain were indeed twisted or not even if according to Don Balón the interview was published without any changes.
On the Don Balon interview, Wenger said:
I stand by my claim [that Cesc Fabregas' words were twisted in the Don Balón interview], [and] I won’t [listen to the audio file].
We had an agreement that they had to send us a copy for approval, it was not done, so I maintain completely that they did not respect the agreement.
The article in itself, I do not want to discuss it with you. What they say is not interesting to us, they did not respect our agreement so there is nothing to discuss, they will never get an interview from us, again, ever.
[Cesc?] I speak with my players regularly, as you can know and I will not discuss that matter further, we have other problems at the moment than discuss every single article that is written about us in the newspapers because [if we do] we would never finish, it would be endless.
