Arsene Wenger responds to Gary Neville’s criticism of Arsenal
The Arsenal manager rejects Gary Neville's criticism of the Gunners after Sunday's draw at Liverpool
Arsene Wenger has played down Gary Neville’s comments about Arsenal after the former defender claimed that the Gunners are “a long way away” from a title challenge.
Speaking on Sky Sports after Sunday’s 2-2 draw at Liverpool, Neville said: “They do not understand how to defend their box and they do not understand how to stop people playing – and that is a massive problem.”
However, Wenger has responded to the former England international’s criticism by insisting that his opinion is “exaggerated”.
Wenger said: “You have to take that with a distance, because it’s judgement on one game. I believe it’s a bit exaggerated.
“[We have] to give absolutely everything in every single game until the end of the season.
“I believe that with the injuries coming back we will have a much stronger squad than we have had for the past two months.
“I believe 2015 can be very exciting [if] we manage to get our injured players back and have a good run.”
