Arsenal boss Wenger against managers getting sling from transfer fees

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is against managers getting a sling from player transfers.

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway admits he will trouser a slice of the profit should the Seasiders cash in on star midfielder Charlie Adam.

Wenger said: "It is down to the chairman and to the board. Personally I am not in favour of it but if the chairman wants that and if the club agrees... I always tried to keep my contracts not involved in these kind of clauses as it can be misinterpreted - and I never wanted that."

Aston Villa boss Gerard Houllier was 'surprised' to hear Holloway stands to cash in on any Adam deal.

He has had a war of words with Ollie over a failed bid for the playmaker.

And he said: "I don't know if it's legal or illegal.

"It is surprising but it is their business, not mine."
