Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is angry with the increased media commitments for himself and his players this season.

The Daily Mail says Wenger led the complaints about the new Premier League media regulations at a heated meeting set up to explain the procedures to the top-flight bosses.

Wenger openly showed his annoyance about one player as well as the manager now having to answer three questions pre-match before every game to service the Premier League’s £5.5billion worth of TV rights holders around the globe.

Wenger wanted to know who had made the decision and why he had not been consulted on this contentious issue before it was presented as a fait accompli. He was backed up by a number of other managers in the southern area summit held at Premier League headquarters in London.
