He didn’t remember it, it was members of the Press who… reminded him, and he looked almost indifferent.
I didn’t know about it but I just have been told by the press. I wouldn’t like too much to reflect on that. I kept my focus on my job always under good and bad circumstances
Arsene Wenger told reporters after Arsenal’s 2-0 home win over Brighton, talking about his 21st anniversary at the Gunners.
When you’re 21 years somewhere you know that you have good and bad moments. Nobody can make 21 years and only fly. What I love in the game is as well to deal with bad moments and find the response
the Frenchman said, looking back at the unavoidable ups and downs he went through all these years at Highbury, and then, Emirates Stadium.
As for the game against Brighton, he was quick to admit that his team were anything but impressive, but even so, the job got done.
We kept a clean sheet. We got the points. Offensively we certainly weren’t ruthless enough. Our focus and the pace in the game was a bit in and out. We had good moments and as well moments where we lost our concentration a bit and balls we usually don’t lose. But we got what we wanted and just before the international break. Our last break was a nightmare, this one is a bit better
Wenger said. It was Nacho Monreal who opened the scoring for the Gunners early in the game, and Alex Iwobi who practically finished the match off with his 2-0 in the 56th minute.
