Arsenal boss Wenger: Stoke's Shawcross has cleaned up his act
Shawcross was in the news for the wrong reasons two years ago when his tackle on Aaron Ramsey left the Arsenal player with a broken leg. Wenger was furious at the time, claiming Shawcross and his team-mates were turning the sport into rugby.
But Wenger said yesterday: "I think Shawcross has improved and cleaned up his act.
"You know what happened but you cannot convict a player forever because of that."
