Wenger unhappy with Mancini comments

Roberto Mancini

Arsene Wenger has hit out at Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini after comments the Italian made about Samir Nasri.

The French international has been strongly linked with a move to the Middle Eastlands Etihad £400m Taking The Piss Out Of FPP Stadium and Mancini said “I don’t know the situation but for Nasri it is difficult. I hope that we can buy because we need other players, and I hope that this player can arrive before the end of the month”.

After Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Chinese side Hangzhou Greentown Wenger was less than pleased with his scarf loving counterpart, accusing him, like Xavi earlier in the week, of being ‘disprespectful’.

“I think the comments are not allowed. They are against the basic rules of football and he should be informed”, he said. “What we want is respect and we don’t make these comments about players who are under contract at other clubs.

“Disrespectful? I cannot say otherwise. This comment is absolutely out of order but I don’t give it more importance than that”.

Nasri played for 45 minutes against Greentown and almost scored with a swivellng volley from the edge of the box. However Mancini’s comments make it quite clear that City haven’t given up on signing him despite Wenger’s insistence this week that the former Marseille man would be staying for the forthcoming season.

The big picture problem is that UEFA does not fine these teams for “tapping up” players. How can Barcelona get away with it. When Wenger is asked about a player he usually replies with, ” Yes he is very talented but he plays for another team and is undercontract so it is not for me to say.” Diplomatic. When Barca and ManCity speak it is like your brother eyeing your plate of food at the dinner table.

I am really starting to dislike City now…UEFA do your fucking job!

yeah, come on Uefa, protect the Old Guard. We don’t like newcomers with ambition as they might deprive us of our Champions League income that we have a God given right to as we have been coining it in for years on end.

Where were UEFA when City said this:

“We have always stressed that we want Shaun to stay at Manchester City and Shaun himself has always been adamant that he is happy here as the club continue to build on the excellent progress made under the leadership of Stuart Pearce.
We do not encourage any bids for Shaun and both the club and the player remain firmly focused on our preparations for the new season.”

Then Winger said this:

“I like Wright-Phillips very much, but we are in a transfer market where you first have to let Chelsea make decisions and then come in when they have made that decision,”
“That is because there is a price for Chelsea and a price for everybody else, and that is why we have to wait until they make a decision. It is very frustrating, but it is a fact.”

One rule for one is it, or is this ok cause it was the winger himself??

By the why Mancini said Nasri is an Arsenal player under contract he wasn’t referring to an individual player when he said ‘I hope we sign THESE players before the end of the month they media and Winger have used a sound bite don‘t let that stop your bile or Wingers two facedness though. Truth is it’s not only the media twisting every thing looks like your manager keeps looking for things to take attention off the fact they’re not signing anybody! What happened to there will be a lot of comings and goings? It looks like only the goings is happening. What is the point in signing 17-20 year olds when you sell them the minute they are any good? Wenger needs to stop with the smoke screens trying to con his own clubs fans and just get on with it!

@u dicks get real

The shit barca and mancini are saying is far worse than the quote from Wenger there. In fact, he was being diplomatic in his admiration of SWP

U dick get real

The fact is Mancini never actually said anything like Nasri will sign by the end of the month only that basically he hopes the players already mentioned in the interview will be signed by then! Watch the interview first it’s twisted by the media and then Wenger uses it as a smoke screen as another Arsenal player goes out of the club, Arsenal fans may say who cares it’s only Denilson but it’s another squad player not being replaced.

The cause of all the trouble is the stupid Bosman ruling. Its unfair to loyal players,clubs and fans. Based on football being a normal business! Have choked on that one? sorry I understand!

I think you will find that the deal is currently in negotiations over Wenger’s head. Mancini never says anything bad about other managers.

But. Mancini didn’t need to say anything, but he did, because Wenger should have kept his mouth shut about the Etihad sponsorship.

Wenger has his own problems at the moment, and he is trying to deflect them to someone else. This will definately be his last season as Arsenal coach. He has lost the board and the plot.

It’s nice that someone in a position to make the decision on Wenger’s status as Arsenal manager comes on here to talk to us.

s.j little

I think that Mansini can speak the language better than sharp! And why does the web allow such weak language?

Gratian

” Yes he is very talented but he plays for another team and is undercontract so it is not for me to say.” It is still an unsettling tactic and everyone knows what it means between the lines. Wenger probably asks for the question to be asked just so he can say it and make the player aware he is interested although with the scummy agents these days everyone knows everything.

Just have the guts to accept that if your team is falling from grace and the club appears to be doing precious little about it then other clubs are going to sniff around your best players.

Regarding the issue with samir nasri and cesc with other teams playing pranks,
we have been pushed to the wall too often lately,it is about time mighty arsenal fc ,made a statement ,a proper statement. ,those kind of statements you make to keep all the gossips quashed.

the barca mugs , want cesc on the cheap ,i mean what does the mayor got to do with football saying cesc is been kidnaped,it is quite scandalous to make such statements without proper facts.cesc is our captain ,the team was built around him,he came to us willingly ,these people are so dumb ,with the way they make stories come out without stating the facts which is ,barca have no money to buy cesc.

for me personally we have been pushed to the wall by all these so called sugar daddy clubs and what is uefa doing about it ,absolutley nothing.
Football is dying ,and one day we will be told to pay all our wages just watch a bunch ot tossers playing with a round object called a football.
arsenal fc ,are in no obligations whatsoever to sell cesc to anyone,be it to barca ,we should not sell any of our best players.
if cesc was so important to them why let him leave in the first place,we are been too nice to all these mugs..too nice..

for nasri,it is up to us to make a statement of intent,it is more like your girlfriend threatening you she will leave you ,and what would you do,what i would do is ,find another girlfriend before she has even finished completing the statement but that is me..

Arsenal fc ,have to show intent ,to their players,fans journalist etc.. we are been pushed around lately from every so called fake rich club out there borrow now and pay later ,i wonder why fifa or uefa even trying to bring in the rule in regards to club finance,when there are loop holes to go around them,it makes a mockery of the whole system.

Long Live The Mighty Arsenal FC.

Arsene Wenger seems to be permanently angry. Shame, he has a wonderful smile.

mancini’s imbecilic attempt at tapping up comes straight from the gary cook book of classless jibing. Watch how there’ll be a similar gormless attempt at getting back at Liverpool for questioning the etihad sponsorhip deal.

nice deflection, did u get that from arsene?

Of course AFC and Liverpool have a full detailed breakdown of our sponsorship deal, they got it from The Daily Mail and The Sun etc………………..

PS, only ‘classless’ people use that word, a bit like ‘common’.

Citeh again behave like the rules don’t apply to them, While this isn’t as blatant as the questionable stadium renaming deal, its still in that grey area of football rules regarding players under contract.
Citeh think that their money will let them get away with anything. And, as much as it pains me to say this, until the major leagues in Europe become closed leagues with salary caps for player wages, this sort of thing will continue to be a problem.

I have no problem with selling Nasri, but he’ll learn soon enough what we already know and that is Mancini is a twat.

How many bloody players do Man City need? Ever since the the Sheikh Moneybags came in, all the City managers have spent money like drunken sailors.

How about City trying to win something by developing the players they already have, rather than just trying to buy any half decent player that is mentioned in the press?

Playing Devil’s Advocate now and as such I’m going to list points rather than structure. It’s too early to be thinking.

Yes RM’s comments were perhaps thoughtless but no I don’t think it’s fair to say he’s tapping him up.

AW needs wake up and smell the coffee. Yes City have taken the piss with vowel, consonant and a few random letters please Carol stadium naming fiasco but UEFA will let them. So rather than sound like the old fart in a park going on about how it was in ‘My day’ we need to realise times have changed and fight fire with fire. At least if we want to remain as a footballing power.

Fellow gooners – yes it stinks but please let’s not detract from the point that our glorious leaders have let us down. Consistently. AW and his rambling rhetoric about potential and mental strength and Gazidis and his bollocks about spending money for a change.

So with as much respect as I have for city I’ll say, ‘Fuck off and buy Kaka’ and to AW and the board, who really take the piss with their 6.5% I’ll coin a wise mans phrase

I don’t get this ‘reporting to UEFA/FIFA/FA thing – don’t they have tvs of theor own? They can see and hear the rules being broken, why does the offended club have to take action?

Enjoyed a City supporter text on SSN yesterday condemning Tevez as ‘a mercenary’. Without a trace of irony. I think City supporters have lost the right to use that phrase. They are no longer a football club in the true sense.

I’m starting to get pretty pissed off now. I’ve ignored most of the transfer gossip this summer, i love my horse racing so i generalllt switch off from football between May and September. But im gettig really fucking annoyed at all these clubs trying to take the piss and stating openly that they want this player and that player. I shows a lack of both class and respect to my great club. Who the FUCK are Man City?
