Arsene Wenger has condemned Spanish publication Don Balon following their recent interview with Gunners captain Cesc Fabregas.
Wednesday night saw Arsenal suffer another setback in the title race after drawing 3-3 against Tottenham at White Hart Lane, dropping to third place with the gap between them and leaders Manchester United now six points.
The build-up to the game was marred by speculation over Fabregas' future after the Barcelona-based magazine printed quotes from the 23-year-old appearing to undermine his manager.
Fabregas' comments suggested that Wenger's policy of fielding younger players was flawed and that the team lacked the character and experience to land trophies.
The midfielder, consistently linked with a move to his native Barcelona, has since claimed that his words were twisted, saying on Twitter: "Incredible that people try and twist everything to make headlines.
"Arsene Wenger has had a huge impact on me and my career. Great man."
Wenger, who spoke out after the draw at White Hart Lane, said: "The article bothers me.
"This was an article organised by the club with a check viewing of the article. Not only did the author not respect the agreement, but also he did twist completely the article and we are really upset about it.
"It was not an attack on my philosophy.
"That is not what he (Fabregas) said. He said completely the opposite."
