Wenger: Xavi interest is unhealthy

37

Arsene Wenger believes there is no point reporting Barcelona midfielder Xavi to UEFA despite the Spanish midfielder using his club’s website to publicly call on Arsenal to let Cesc Fabregas return to the Camp Nou.

Having already dismissed the pint-size playmaker as a troublemaker, Wenger again stressed his disappointment at the manner in which Pep Guardiola’s squad continued to cultivate headlines in the press with their continued whingeing about a transfer deal which appears no closer to being completed.

Speaking from China ahead of Saturday’s pre-season showdown with Hangzou Greentown, Wenger told press:

“I don’t think it’s a sentence big enough to report a club to FIFA. The impression I had was that it wasn’t respectful to our Club or to Cesc. I don’t make more than that.

“It has to stop, of course. If there is a transfer negotiation between two clubs, I don’t think it is healthy if players come out [and talk] who are not concerned by it. Unfortunately, in this case, it has happened a few times. It will not contribute to sort any problem out.

“Xavi has no direct part to play in that story and I don’t see why he should, unless he has an official job to do for Barcelona. I don’t see why he can go on the [official Barcelona] website and make this kind of statement.”

It remains to be seen whether an apology is forthcoming from the Camp Nou, but given the apparent strained relationship which has existed between Arsenal and Barcelona throughout the last decade it seems unlikely.

thank goodness arsene’s time taken to sell players is as long as it takes him to buy players.

Talented as this guy is, i doubt too many Arsenal fans would shed tears if he was to get ‘shawcrossed’ at some point! Beggars belief the lack of respect that Xavi and Barcelona in general are showing to our club, players and fans.

@ Fed up of Barca.

What a tosser you are then. Grow up mate sending death threats in an email makes you about as scary as some gimp in a clownsuit. NO SUBSTANCE!!!

Get a life.

@ Elly,

TBH I dont think Barca have any respect for anyone. Look at the way they play act on the pitch. Saying that however I think that “Win at any cost” attitude could probably do some good to your own teams chances.

Fuck you douchebag – your an internet warrior too by mouthing off at me.

I didn’t send him a death threat for your information.
I merely said for such a great player (I actually believe he is the worlds best player such is the way he dictates games) with so many people that look up to him that he is a tosser (after about the 800th Cesc DNA comment) and that I HOPE he gets seriously injured in the name of karma or dies.

It’s vicious I agree, but still my opinion.

You are in fact entitled to your opinion, but on top of getting his personal email address you better have sent it in Spanish because Xavi doesn’t speak English. Lol.

The idea that they can buy Cesc for their ludicrously undervalued 35m is frankly laughable. It is never going to happen. And it should be plain by now to Xavi and the rest of them over at “Less than a Club” that their obnoxious tactics are making it worse, not better.

Cesc is staying, that much is increasingly obvious. Their 35m is about half what he’s worth.

we should petition wenger to table a bid of £33.7m for messi, after all they think they can get cesc for a reported bid of £35m so let’s turn the table on them. wenger should also get nasri, cesc, vermaelen & co to come out with various statements about how messi cries himself to sleep at night cos he so unhappy & wants to join us. watch how barca & FIFA & blatter would react then.

Fuck you KEV it’s our right to pass judgement on anyone we deem even slightly disrespectful to our team you goody two shoes chump, obviously if someone said that about fabregas I’d want them knee capped but that is the wonderful hypocrisy of football you cunt

Now the mayor of Cesc’s home town has waded in with his dos pesetas. Kidknapped. For fucks sake, it’s farcial. Maybe he can speak to the regional head of Catalunya and see if he will do a whip round for Brokelona on the municipal tax so they can afford to buy him.

Take this used Kleenex for your tears you fucking muppet!

I was really hoping that Barca would have had a couple training matches closer to my home here in the US so I could have made a day trip out of driving down to punch Xavi in his cunty little mouth hole.
That said, he really is unhealthy, just look at that face! He looks like a hairy little ghoul.

I think Fab might be suffering because his so-called ‘friends’ at Barca are the ones attempting to ruin everything. Plus, despite our well-documented trophy drought, Arsenal is still a immense club to be at. Cesc gets paid well and he has the chance to be a great leader of a club with history that other players can only dream of. So, he should be in no rush to head off to Barcelona because he knows at some point in his career he will end up there so why try and force it. And at any point during this whole saga no one should assume that the grass will be greener on the other side. They may have a great side now, but it will always be his ‘boyhood’ club no matter when he goes.

Barcelona had a lengthy dry spell in the early part of last decade while Arsenal were winning things galore, so they should pay as much respect to us as we have to them. We’ve heard everybody’s side of the story, Cesc, Xavi, Pique, Wenger and of course, the fans. Yet, certain Barca players have shown us time and again how NOT to do things. They have had simply no class during any of this so it’s understandable that why Wenger, Fab and Arsenal should feel insulted.

@Kev
Stop mouthing off our fans and go rant in your Spurs blogs.
Strange that Xavi hasn’t mentioned ‘Barca DNA’

Ken N. C

Cesc has been suffering so much that he signed a deal tying him up for such a long time. All this ‘boy-hood club’ thing is crap, why did he leave Barcelona in the first place?

A little late to comment on this post.I am amazed at this player’s arrogance whose national team has only started winning trophies from last 3 years otherwise they would’ve still been the perennial underdogs . Even Zidane who won major trophies in succession with France and then CL with Madrid , has never displayed such arrogance. I sincerely hope Mourinho’s Madrid & the “winking diver ” rout Barca this time.
