Wenger mad at Domenech

Share |

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger hit out at Raymond Domenech on Saturday after the France boss played Thierry Henry for the full 90 minutes in the midweek friendly game against Bosnia.

Wenger was furious Domenech did not bring his talismanic striker off during World Cup runners-up France's 2-1 win, especially with the match coming so soon after the tournament in Germany which ended last month.

"It's disrespectful," Wenger told a news conference after Arsenal's 1-1 Premier League draw with Aston Villa at the London club's new Emirates stadium.

"When you rest the players and give them extra holiday because they have been at the World Cup and then they take those footballers on a friendly and play them for 90 minutes...I find that provocative.

"Actually, in the World Cup they always took him off before the end of the game and then they play a friendly and play him for 90 minutes," Wenger finished.

We must mention that Arsenal almost lost on their Emirates debut, with Brazilian player Gilberto Silva scoring a late equaliser after Olof Mellberg had put Villa ahead.
