Arsenal boss Wenger: I know rivals think me aloof

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger knows rival managers find him aloof.

Blackburn boss Sam Allardyce has delivered another personal attack on Wenger, including the fact he does not mix with rival managers after matches and share a bottle of wine.

Wenger shrugged: "I recognise that. There's no bad feeling in that, I just feel after the game you stay on your own and you don't want to disturb people.

"I've got nothing against having a glass of wine with a manager. But when you play away from home you are in a hurry to catch the plane and you are playing three days later.

"I'm not shy. I didn't even know this tradition existed before I came here."
