Wenger defends Arsenal bid for Cabaye

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has defended their bid for Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew discussed Arsenal's offer for Cabaye on Monday night.

Wenger said: "I live in a public job where there are opinions of everybody.

"I do with full commitment what I believe is important for the club and the team and prepare for the next game. There is nothing to explain (about Cabaye).

"First of all, you don't know what we have done, you don't know if we did bid and you have come to a conclusion without knowing everything that has happened.

"It is quite amazing that all of the people don't know and yet they always have opinions about things they don't know.

"I won't explain to you what happened. It is not down to me to explain to you everything I do. It is impossible.

"If we do a transfer we will announce it. We always inform you. As for the rest, you have to leave us to do our own things."
