Wenger held 45-minute Arsenal crisis talks after Cup shock

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger held crisis talks with his players in the aftermath of their FA Cup humiliation by Blackburn Rovers.

The Daily Mail says Wenger held an immediate 45-minute inquest into his Arsenal side’s failings after the shock FA Cup defeat by Blackburn in a bid to salvage their season ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League clash with Bayern Munich.

Wenger kept his players in the dressing room on Saturday to thrash out what was wrong after his side were booed off the Emirates pitch following their FA Cup fifth-round defeat.

The FA Cup exit, together with December’s Capital One Cup defeat by Bradford and poor league form, has led to some fans demanding that Wenger goes, although Arsenal back their manager and could even offer him a new contract.
