Quotes of the week
Arsene Wenger has admitted telling lies to the media on occasions in an attempt to shield his Arsenal players.
The Gunners boss was responding to questions in the wake of Wayne Rooney's contradiction of earlier comments made by Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
Ferguson had told reporters that his star striker, who has come under the spotlight due to allegations surrounding his private life, was not fit enough for the recent games against Valencia and Sunderland due to an ankle injury.
But when asked after playing 90 minutes in England's 0-0 draw with Montenegro at Wembley in midweek if his ankle had caused any problems, Rooney replied: "No, I have had no ankle problems all season."
And when quizzed on his thoughts on the issue, Wenger replied: "If you ask me have I lied to the press to protect a player, I must honestly say yes.
"I didn't feel comfortable but I had a clear conscience because it was for a good cause.
"But when I lie to the press I speak beforehand with the player and say: 'Listen, this is the story we're going to give."'
Wenger declined to identify the occasions when he was economical with the truth adding: "If you ask me why I've lied I would have to give concrete examples and you find out which player."
I think Arsene is correct for doing this! The media need to know that the people they write about (usually slander), do in fact actually owe them NOTHING. Footballers, managers, clubs etc etc owe the media nothing at all. When the press ask for an "explanation"...haha that makes me chuckle. The people don''''t owe the press an explanation...The media are nothing but money hungry filth that prey on people in an attempt to ruin someone''''s reputation and make a buck doing it. The majority is baseless and lies. Credible reporting was lost way back in the 80''''s.

I''''m no fan of Arsenal but this doesn''''t really seem like much of a story. The welfare of the players is more important than helping the gutter press get more dirt, and as long as the players in question haven''''t committed any crimes I don''''t see the reason why Wenger should reveal their identities. What I would say is that you''''d better make sure that your players are going to stick to the story, because Rooney has pretty much embarrassed Ferguson by admitting that his issues are not physical. We all know about Rooney''''s personal problems so I don''''t see why Ferguson had to justify his exclusion from the squad. Ancellotti didn''''t make any excuses when John Terry was underperforming last season, so there''''s no reason to assume there''''s anything else going on with Rooney. We forget sometimes that players are human beings, and as such they need to recover from personal problems even if they are self-inflicted. No amount of money will help them or should be expected to so I see no reason why Ferguson couldn''''t have just said he was being rested so he could get his head together.
