Wenger defends his snood wearing Arsenal stars

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has defended his snood wearing stars.

Marouane Chamakh and Samir Nasri, whose brace beat Fulham on Saturday to fire the Gunners top of the table, have been criticised by some for wearing snoods.

But boss Wenger believes there is nothing wrong with such attire - as long as it does not affect movement or vision.

He said: "I know there has been discussion of players using things like neck-warmers and leggings to keep warm, with Marouane Chamakh and Samir Nasri among the growing number of players wearing them.

"I have to explain, though, that both of them had stiff necks before the Aston Villa game - Samir could not train properly two days beforehand and it is a persistent problem for Marouane, so our medical staff were trying to protect them.

"I have no problem with it, as long as it does not restrict the players' movement or harm their vision."
