Hull manager Steve Bruce this week was asked by his team’s news site his thoughts about Arsène Wenger. Bruce gave Wenger top praise. “Just when they needed a big couple of results they got them. You give great credit to the manager. It doesn’t matter how they got them, they might not have played the ‘Arsenal way’ against Wigan last week or against West Ham but they’ve turned it around and won back-to-back games when they’ve needed to.” Bruce added “Just when they needed a couple of results they’ve got them and how often has Mr Wenger done that? For me, the manager gets unfair criticism.”
Bruce said that Wenger’s record is unmatched in the EPL. “The guy has done an amazing job for the last 17 years…16 of those in the top four is a remarkable achievement considering he hasn’t had the funds all the other big clubs have had.”
Bruce admitted that Wenger does not fit everyone’ favorite list. “He’s not everybody’s cup of tea but the one thing you must say is his teams play a fantastic way and he’s proved to be one of the greats as far as I’m concerned. He’s not had the spending power of the big, huge clubs in Europe but he’s always been competing – semi-finals, finals, the final of the Champions League. With his record how we’re even questioning him baffles me.”
Wenger, however, told news that the credit is his players, not his own. “What is satisfying for me is that we do as well as we can until the end of the season, that you can turn and think ‘this team has behaved really like a top-level professional team’, with all the ups and the downs. Because that is what you want from your team, to feel that the team has given as much as they could.”
Wenger says that he does not focus on other people’s judgment assessments. “After that, you leave the judgment to other people. We want to come out of the season and think we have given absolutely everything, and I must say this team has been absolutely focused since the start of the season. We had our downs, and big downs for some periods, but the behavior was always focused.” For live score results Sunday click HERE. And for the latest EPL Table results click HERE.
