Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits their Carling Cup final defeat to Birmingham City will stay with him.

Arsenal went from a side chasing the Quadruple to also-rans — winning just three of their last 15 matches, finishing potless and fourth in the league.

Wenger said: "Yes, it will hurt me for ever because we never forget disappointments.

"That's part of life at a managerial level, you do not only have successes but disappointments, too. People forget we fought very hard to get there and, overall, we produced great performances in the Carling Cup last year."
