Arsene Wenger Won’t Spend Big In January

Arsene Wenger has told reporters that he will not spend big in the Winter transfer window.

When asked why Arsenal no longer sign big names, Wenger said: “Because we respect our budget. You look at the clubs who lose £100million or £150m and if we do that then we go bust. It’s as simple as that. We pay what we can afford.

“I’m amazed that people are amazed that we do that. I think what is surprising is that people don’t respect that.

“If I tell you we can win two more points but we lose £150m, what will you say? Win two more points. But when I ask a second question, where do we get the £150m in? Maybe you don’t have the same answer.

“The beauty of the competition and this club is to be successful while respecting the balance and the funds of financial balance and all the rest for me doesn’t look normal.

“People will maybe realise one day that it’s not as easy to stay at the top and as well to cope with financial compulsories that you have at the top.

“We face rivals who do not respect the financial fair play. Instead, of us being accused, maybe people should look somewhere else.”
