Arsene Wenger speaks out over rumours he is wanted by Real Madrid


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has rubbished reports claiming that Real Madrid want him to replace Rafa Benitez.

The Spaniard is under heavy pressure after his team's 4-0 defeat against Barcelona in the "El Clasico".

But the 66-year-old says the Spanish giants would be foolish to sack their manager after only a few months in charge.

"No and I would just like to take this occasion to completely support Rafael Benitez, who is an outstanding manager," Wenger said.

"I think it would be not serious to sack the manager after 12 games. I hope that he will get the support of Florentino Perez."

Speaking about his team's negative spell, the Frenchman added: "In the last two games we have dropped points.

"We know as well that before that we won five games on the trot and you can go through a spell like that - it is how you respond to that and that is what makes your season.

"That is why it is a good test for us. It is true that we need a positive result from Bayern,but that only has an impact if we win, so let's focus on what we can do.

"I believe that when everybody is back we have a squad to compete in both [the Premier League and Champions League]. If we go through now in the Champions League we can be very dangerous for everybody."
