Under pressure Arsene Wenger angrily hits out over goalkeeper selection ahead of Manchester United clash


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has lost his cool at Friday's press conference ahead of Sunday's clash at the Emirates against Manchester United.

The Gunners host the Red Devils after suffering a second surprise Champions League defeat.

And asked what is the point in signing one of the world's best goalkeepers only to keep him on the bench in the Champions League, the Frenchman reacted angrily and also threatened to end his press conference after asked if he's as untouchable as Jose Mourinho hinted last week.

"I'm comfortable with either goalkeeper, they are both world class. I had to leave one out," Wenger is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"I make the decision I think is best for the team on the day. I am accountable on the results of my team and the way we play football.

"[Jose Mourinho's comments?] Stop that or we stop the press conference.

"If you have any interesting questions for Sunday's game I can answer, but apart from that let's not come back always to the same story.

"I think you [the press] lack a bit of creativity in the press at the moment, that you follow a bandwagon that is very very, very, very boring. I don't go along with that."
