Arsene: What About Abuse At ManU?

Arsene: What About Abuse At ManU?

Arsene Wenger has responded to Fergie's tirade about the 'dangers' he endured at Ashburton Grove recently, detailed in a piece on thisislondon.co.uk.

Quoted from an interview given to Setanta Sports, Arsene said:

I was surprised that Alex Ferguson came out and said it was played in a bad spirit and a bad atmosphere.

I didn't have that feeling. although I didn't sit on their bench. But I can tell you, I could get some dossier together from Manchester United when I go there.


And we Gooners all know the type of incidents he's referring to. They are vile, quite blatantly untrue, slanderous outpourings of bile.

I wonder if Fergie will respond to this and air his thoughts on the abuse Wenger goes through on each visit to Old Trafford?

Ultimately it depends on what was said. Referring to Wengers alledged predelictions is slander and defamation and is very unpleasant. However if the chants are directed at Wenger for being French then that's surely racism, and clubs have a responsibility to act under 'kick racism out of football'. Likewise, if the chants against Ferguson are stereotyping him because he's Scottish then that is racism - if references are purely made about his alledged alcoholism then fine, but if that alcoholism is implying all Scots are drunks then thats racism and clubs are obligated to act. Only if at ManUted if they were implying the French are a nation of kiddiefiddlers would that be racism. I think.

ES, clubs dont just have a responsibilty to stamp out racism. They have a duty to stamp out anything which breaks the law including slanderous statements & chants. Amazingly though I never hear the spuds or the mancs say anything to their fans about such behaviour.

AG, I thought it was only if it contained words which fall under discrimination law .... so sexual orientation, racism, religion etc? Whilst it is unpleasant, slanderous statements aren't actually criminal, they fall under civil law, so its up to the individual being slandered to either sue the individual make the statement, or the company they represent for allowing it to happen.

Hence Wenger having the right to sue Manchester United for allowing such bile and filth directed at him E.S.

Actually he probably can't. Unbelievably because he never took formal action years ago the situation could be defended as ... 'Fair Comment: the defendant shows that the statement was a view that a reasonable person could have held, even if they were motivated by dislike or hatred of the plaintiff.' - they'd argue the chants have gone on since Wenger arrived as he'd done nothing previously.

To be fair it's probably water off a duck's back to him anyway. I'm sure also that had Man.Yoo won at The Emirates Fergie wouldn't be making any complaints either. It all seems a little childish to me.
