League Manager's Association Backs Wenger

League Manager's Association Backs Wenger

The League Managers Association have given Arsene Wenger their backing following the disgraceful personal attack on the Arsenal Gaffer by Michelle Prattini.

As reported yesterday, Platini slammed Wenger for his views on goal-line technology and labeled him as a man who is more interested in business over football.

LMA Chief Executive, Richard Bevan, made the point that Wenger is not on his own in the quest for technology "There is an overwhelming majority in favour of goal line technology among our members. It is important that Platini does not lose touch with the current views and opinions held on technical matters within bodies such as the League Managers Association".

Whilst Howard Wilkinson backed Le Boss on a personal level. 'Platini has made serious and personal comments about one of football`s greatest ever managers, who is also counted among our most respected members.

"If Platini wishes to address certain issues with Arsene Wenger this would better be done privately and not in the public domain.

"I believe Arsene has always acted in the best interests of the game."

Too bloody right. I hate that guy. Even more than Mark Lawrenson. And I f*****g hate Mark Lawrenson. Pratini has to be a moron of the highest order to believe that Arsene Wenger is anything other than one of the most intelligent people in world football, whose ideas and philosophys should be the model upon which UEFA's future planning should be built.

He would just be happy if we only played Internationals. Now I'm not Naive enough to think we often only hear what he says negatively about football in this country, but he does seem to have it in for English football (even his countrymen over here). LG, i've asked the question before. If an English manager made that sort of comment about someone, the FA or LMA would attempt to bring them into line. Who does that to him??

He's a 2 bob politician of the highest order, this is what happens when he has no one to answer to. If he did, he'd have been out of office donkey's ago.

What strikes me is that his comments are so extraordinarily, blatantly unprofessional for someone in his position. They're so obviously petty and childish -- and personal. Criticize Wenger publicly in an interview, ok -- but in such a personal, childish way, it's just so classless.

I think we can all unanimously agree......Platini needs to be Eboued. Sharpish.

We should cut Platini some slack. The man is obviously mentally retarded and not responsible for his words. We shouldn't condemn him but help him- I'm sure there are many nice homes in France that could take care of his needs.
