SPORT: Arsene Wenger furious at being questioned over Petr Cech and David Ospina

Arsene Wenger threatened to walk out of his pre-match press conference for the clash with Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday Our man on the ground, Chief Football Correspondent Jason Burt, has sent in this report from the press conference. And with that I shall bid you farewell. Thanks for joining. Cheerio.Arsene Wenger threatened to walk out of his press conference when he was asked whether Jose Mourinho was right in claiming he was the only Premier League manager not under pressure.The Arsenal manager appeared to show signs of strain, how ever, by saying it was “depressing” and “boring” that his decision to play David Ospina over Petr Cech in the Champions League defeat at home to Olympiakos had been criticised.“Stop that story or
we stop the press conference,” Wenger said when asked about Mourinho’s claim before adding when asked whether Cech would play in Sunday’s Premier League match against Manchester United: “Do not come always back with that same story. I think you lack a bit of creativity in the press at the moment and you follow a bandwagon. It’s very boring.“I don’t go along with that (criticism). If you have an interesting question I will answer but apart from that let’s not always come back to the same story. Come to the game on Sunday and you will see who’s in the goal.“I think you have not watched well the game on Tuesday night. To come always with the same story.“You can put the goalkeeper you want in the goal. He can make a mistake and you have to accept that.“If you watched really the game and you come to the conclusion we lost because of Ospina I question your knowledge in football.”Arsenal have come in for fierce criticism following their defeat against the Greek champions but Wenger was defiant about the opinions voiced by various television pundits, including former Arsenal players.“Because they lack a bit of creativity in their questions.” Wenger said. “They don’t analyse well. Honestly, not one came out and analysed well the game. One pundit says something on TV and all behind that repeat the same thing. It is quite boring.“Nobody came out with numbers where the game was won or lost. It’s quite depressing to read that and hear that. But all just come to the same conclusion and haven’t watched what’s gone on on the pitch.“We lost the game because we didn’t defend well. Yes the keeper made a mistake but we could still have won the game because of that.”
