Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger doesn't believe Emmanuel Adebayor joined Manchester City for money.

Wenger maintained: "I do not regret losing him.

"I believe we lost a great player, but we have other great players behind. I believe in Eduardo, [Carlos] Vela and [Nicklas] Bendtner and we of course already have [Robin] van Persie as a big asset in our team.

"We have a good striking force, we have [Theo] Walcott who can be turned into a striker so we can cope with that [loss]."

Wenger insisted: "I personally do not think that Adebayor was obsessed by money.

"I must say that to be fair to him.

"If you consider the Premier League, you cannot say we are one of the bottom clubs financially.

"We have very fair financial potential."
