Arsenal boss Wenger unsurprised by timing of managerial sackings

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger isn't surprised by the managerial sackings this week.

Neil Warnock and Alan Irvine have lost their jobs at Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion respectively.

"That's shows you how quickly our life changes," said Wenger.

"It's true that sometimes it goes in numbers at the same time. You have enough experience and I have as well to know that Christmas is always a sensitive period because people reflect, sit together in their families, talk - they say, 'you should do this, you should do that'. It's always a very sensitive period for the managers because you have half the season to go, it's a moment where people are scared to go down sometimes and that's why everything's happened."
