Sunderland boss Bruce: Wenger never likes to drink with us

Sunderland boss Steve Bruce has shrugged off complaints from Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger in the aftermath of Saturday's dramatic draw.

Wenger made his feelings clear to fourth official Martin Atkinson and could face an FA charge after following an earlier sarcastic pat on the official's back with a weak shove on his shoulder blade.

Bruce said: "Even with all Mr Wenger's antics, you can't get away from what he's done (at Arsenal). For me, he's a genius.

"He doesn't like to get beat, but none of us do. He's never had a drink with us, but that's up to him."
