Disrespectful, Discourteous & Disappointing

Disrespectful, Discourteous & Disappointing

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger showed his true colours following Manchester City's 3-0 Carling Cup win last night.

A row between Mark Hughes and Wenger in the technical area during the first half clearly upset the Frenchman, however there was no need to ignores Sparky's handshake request following the referee's final whistle. After all, its only a game.

Hughes said...

'It's his choice whether or not to shake my hand. I questioned why he was over my side of the technical area. He seemed aggrieved by that. I'd suggest that he was more aggrieved by the fact that his team were beaten.'

'I was a little bit disappointed as I have a huge respect for him. Maybe he needs to be a little more gracious.'


Wenger responded...

It had nothing to do with the game. I'm free to shake hands with whoever I want at the final whistle. Is it not a professional courtesy? Yes, it is. OK, then I have no professional courtesy.'

Technical bust up

No need to have your speakers on for this, well not unless you understand Spanish. Halfway through the clip the camera picks up the dustup between both managers. Careful though as you have to be quick or you'll miss it.

They've been showing all of Wengers touchline bust-ups on Sky Sports News today, his one with Pardew at West Ham was the best!

ESPN have taken down the clip. I'll keep an eye out should they decide to re-introduce it.

Disappointing indeed. Sparky is a warrior type but Wenger has always been astute. When he commentates on TF1 in France he's very often spot on, but he's begginning to let frustration get the better of him. I reckon he'll pack it in before too long.

Wenger is losing it, he's going down the same route as Sir Red Nose when it comes to behaviour!
