Harsh Criticism Of Mertesacker
Arsene Wenger has described the criticism leveled against Per Mertesacker as unfair.
Speaking to arsenal.com Wenger said that the defender had been far better than most pundits have given him credit for.
'I feel people have been harsh in their judgment. I like Per very much, but because he is so tall, sometimes if he looks less impressive in one situation, people make a definite negative judgment but he grows stronger in every game. I am really happy with him.'
