Wenger Regrets Reaction

Arsene Wenger has at last spoken about the incident on the touchline at West Ham last week that caused much embarassment for the club.

Le Boss says he regrets reacting the way he did even though he feels he was provoked.
Wenger also revealed that Pardew's celebration spilled over into the Arsenal technical area which would explain why Wenger was more than a little peeved.

'The conclusion is I felt provoked in a disrespectful way in my area,' Wenger told Sky Sports 1.

'I responded and I regret that I responded I shouldn't have done it. Pardew apologised and I accept his apology. I asked for a one week's holiday from the media in ten years. I need a little break as well.'

'It was not linked with the incident. It was completely different reasons. I'll keep those reasons for myself. We could have both done better. It is an incident that can happen in football.'

It is all water under the bridge now and I fullt expect a good hearty handshake when West Ham visit the Grove.

i saw the interview and thought, thats class, he gets away without actually saying sorry but he accepted Pardews apology... personally i don't care, if my manager shows passion, then that is good for me, i mean you could have that fat one down the road he just spends most of his time like the fat laughin policeman !

**** of Cravens you fool. You have that whingeing ******ing Nannygoat that couldn't inspire Bush to go to war and you have the cheek to keep slagging off Wenger. Get yourself out more and find something more keeping with your personality, like dominoes (I hear you can play that without expressing any passion).

baldyyid,whats more pathetic,is your managers inability to inspire your own team to beat a lower division side like reading,i would be more concerned by that fact,rather than the antics of a considerably more successful manager than yours.
