Arsenal boss Wenger has no regrets over Stoke blast

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has no regrets over his scathing attack on Stoke City this week.

After their 0-0 draw with Fenerbahce, Wenger said: "I responded to some statements made by a Stoke player (Thomas Sorensen).

"I wasn't happy with some tackles and wanted to say that you don't have to be brave to tackle from behind.

"The brave one is the guy who tries to play football. Why should I regret that? I maintain that strongly. It is not bitterness after a defeat.

"Sometimes in England we feel 'he didn't fancy that'. Of course we didn't fancy that because that is not football.

"Of course we are ready to battle. But it depends what you mean by battle."
