Arsene Wenger saddened by criticism from former Arsenal skipper Tony Adams

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has backed Gunners fans for "voting with their feet" and boycotting the club's game against Sunderland. And though I modified that in the final article it didn't go down well.

Wenger said he was unconcerned by Adams's criticism, especially since the former defender's coaching tenure at Granada, where he oversaw six losses in six games, has ended in relegation from La Liga in Spain. I know him for a long time.

"Director of football, when I say that, is a guy who decides the decisions that are normally are down to the manager".

And responding to Adams' claims about how he'd tried to find a job at Arsenal over the years, Wenger was clear about why it didn't happen. Just because you have made a career as a player somewhere, it doesn't give you any divine right to come back. For me it's a subject of no interest.

"Look, in a football club today, you have to employ people who can help you to be successful", he said.

Although Arsenal should be held to ransom over the wage demands of the two players, and they should be willing to move on from them if they see fit, Keown's critique of the duo is entering a unsafe territory, a territory which we have, painfully, seen before, where the best players leave and replacements are not found. "There is a fear that if Arsenal give them ridiculous sums of money to stay, they could throw their toys out of the pram once more when things go wrong".

"It all left me feeling that I would never get a chance in any capacity while Arsene was there". You have to be needed.

Sanchez recently said that he is planning to sit down with Arsenal chiefs and discuss his situation at the end of the season.

"What is most important for me is to do the job well and finish the season as strongly as we can", he said.

Arsenal have won their last four league games and Wenger expected his side to focus on their own performance ahead of the final weekend of the season. If we finish the job well, it can be maximum one point short.

"We approach this game like we do always", said the Dutchman.

To finish in the top four, they must either better Liverpool's result at home to relegated Middlesbrough or win and hope City lose at Watford by a margin that enables a five-goal swing in goal difference.
