Arsenal boss Wenger: Van Persie doesn't bother me

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists Robin van Persie "doesn't bother me" after defeat at Manchester United.

He insists he said "nothing special" to Van Persie when the pair met and claimed he was not concerned by the fact his former star player scored.

Wenger said: "Honestly that doesn't bother me at all. It doesn't matter.

"What you want is to win the game - you don't care about who scores in their team.

"What is most important is that you don't make a mistake at the back, and that you don't give chances away.

"I am disappointed of course, because we had a lot of the ball, but we were not very efficient in our final third or in their final third.

"Then you feel the domination was a bit illusionary - we had a lot of the ball, but they created more chances and deserved to win the game."
