Arsene Wenger while speaking in the post-match press conference after Arsenal’s shocking home loss to West Ham had this to say when he was asked about adding to his squad before the close of the transfer window…
I would like to think that we are responsible to buy the players and the coaches, not the media.
“When you’re a pro footballer, you have to face your responsibilities and not always look at something else. Today we have to look at ourselves and think we were not good enough and not to think that these kinds of things are solutions for us. We were not good enough, we were not convincing. And that’s basically it.
“West Ham played well, “Congratulations to them and hopefully we can bounce back quickly. Again, I can only repeat what I already said. If an exceptional solution turns up, we’ll do it. But after a defeat like that, it’s important not always to think we take a solution from outside.”
