Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has dismissed concerns over their ambition.

Wenger has defended Arsenal's ambition as the Robin van Persie saga dragged on.

"We always defend the values of the club, and the model has to be self-sustainable, otherwise it can completely go out of shape and become very fragile," the Frenchman said.

"The financial solidity of the club is vital, for me, and therefore I have always supported that and I will continue to do that.

"I believe that the Financial Fair Play is about that. If UEFA push it through they will have a big supporter in me.

"I believe that football has to work like every single company, it has to work with the money it produces itself."
