Fergie Defends Wenger Shocker
In a season of surprises, Sir Alex Ferguson is the latest to provide a shock to football fans all over the world by sticking up for his arch nemesis Arsene Wenger.
Le Boss has been often criticised for fielding teams made up entirely of non-English players, but his old buddy has defended Wenger's honour by claiming the English academy system is at fault and not the Arsenal gaffer.
In a time when success, and plenty of it, is key to remaining top of the tree for many years, clubs such as Arsenal & Man Utd can not wait around for the youth systems and academies to catch up with the rest of the world.
Speaking in an interview where questions regarding the lack of English players in our top flight were posed, Fergie stuck up for his old mate.
'Your obvious slant is towards Arsenal, Arsene Wenger is very strong on French football and African players.'
'Why should he not take advantage? The problem doesn't lie with Arsene Wenger, it's with the system.'
'When the academies were set up, Howard Wilkinson said England would win the World Cup within 10 years. Well, they have been going eight now and I can't see it.'
Despite being the Man Utd manager, he is of course correct.
