Arsenal boss Wenger won't criticise Rafa rotations

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has refused to criticise Rafa Benitez's rotation policy at Liverpool.

Ahead of today's big game, Wenger said: "I agree with Rafa that it is the person who is right in May that counts.

"He has been in two European Cup finals in three years so you have to respect that. He must be doing something right.

"Frankly I don't like the phrase 'to keep everyone happy'. What does it mean? If a player doesn't play he is not happy. It's like something has been discovered when a player isn't happy.

"People react surprised that there is competition but that is the essence of our job. We have to accept that. If I am a player and go to Arsenal Football Club I know it will be difficult because there is competition. I substituted Thierry (Henry), of course."
