Usmanov won't pressure Arsenal boss Wenger over transfer spending

Arsenal major shareholder Alisher Usmanov refuses to pressure manager Arsene Wenger to step up his buying.

Usmanov was disappointed with their Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich.

"Of course I am disappointed (by the Bayern defeat) but this really was the best team in the world against us. Unfortunately we did not have luck," he said.

"Good play but what can you do when you have one man less? It's a difficulty in football.

"My view of the red card for Wojciech Szczesny? I don't see so well whether it is contact or not.

"Does this team need further investment in order to win titles? This is for my lovely friend Mr Wenger to decide. It's his decision."
