Arsene Wenger has responded to comments made by Arsenal legend Tony Adams.
Yesterday, we brought you the story of Tony Adams claiming Arsene Wenger “couldn’t coach his way out of a paper bag.”
The comments made by the ex-Arsenal man have caught the attention of his former boss.
“I do not give too much importance to what Tony Adams says,” Wenger said.
“He can show what he can do now. Who gives importance to that? I know him for a long time. It’s sad.
“I am respectful to everybody. I don’t have anything to say about that. For me, it’s a subject of no interest. And so I would like to dedicate my time to something that is more interesting.
“Look, in a football club today, you have to employ people who can help you to be successful. Sometimes it is to make harsh decisions.
“You have to be needed. And like you have made a career as a player somewhere, it doesn’t give you any divine right to come back. That’s what it is.
“Because all the players, at some stage, they decide to leave, when their interest was to leave. It is not like some players have never left the club. When it was their interest to go somewhere else, they went somewhere else.”
Arsenal will take on Everton on the last day of the season, and Wenger remains amendment that he and his side will be focused on the task at hand, and not worrying about other factors, such as Wenger and his future.
“What is most important for me is to do the job well and finish the season as strongly as we can,” he said.
“If we finish the job well, it can be maximum one point short. I’m not here for personal glory or to sell books, I’m here to do the job.”
