Stoke’s manager tells Wenger to stop “moaning like a drain.”
It will surprise no-one that Arsene Wenger has been suggesting his Arsenal side have had a raw deal this week.
The Gunners’ manager, who could make a career out of whinging, firstly criticised Wolves for fielding an under-strength side against Arsenal’s rivals Manchester United on Tuesday night.
He then went on to complain that his side were playing too many games, after only managing a 1-1 draw against Burnley on Wednesday night.
This all came on the back of last weeks news that Arsenal are seeking compensation from the Dutch Football Federation over the injury picked up by Robin van Persie while on international duty in November.
It seems that one Premiership manager has had enough of Arsene’s constant whining though.
Stoke manager, Tony Pulis, said: “Wenger is moaning like a drain because it doesn’t suit Arsenal. He ain’t moaning because it doesn’t suit Stoke.
“He is saying it because it doesn’t suit him and that was what Mick (Mcarthy) has done.
“I don’t think it (Man Utd’s 3-0 victory over Wolves) was the walk in the park for United that people are suggesting.”
On the subject of the fixture build-up debate, Pulis added: “No disrespect to Wenger or any foreign manager but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with asking professional athletes to perform twice in three or four days.”
