Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger played Chelsea's frozen transfer ban with a straight bat yesterday.

Wenger refused to enter the row over FIFA's initial decision to ban Chelsea from transfers over their deal for Gael Kakuta, which has since been suspended on appeal.

Wenger said: "It is no punishment as they haven't stopped Kakuta moving. Now it suits them to appeal as they can continue to buy. If it's legal, then it's legal."
