Arsene Wenger hits out at Manchester United

The Arsenal manager has spent big in the last two transfer markets but is critical of the Red Devils’ policy of spending big on new players

After spending a fortune to secure the services of the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, it appears that Arsene Wenger still believes that he is still giving youth a chance and feels that Manchester United are not doing the same thing.

While speaking to media, the Frenchman said that he has been surprised to see his foes leave the policy of giving youth a chance and going big on new players in the transfer market.

Wenger said: “We want to continue to combine stronger financial resources with faith in our philosophy and policy.

“That means we want to continue to give chances to young players and build the players from inside our club with our culture.

“You can take Barcelona or Man United, who had a generation and built their success on players who came from within.

“These are our values and it is our DNA and it’s important we keep that.

“With United’s success they have created huge financial resources and today there is no patience for them to continue to do what they did – and they have the financial resources to go with a different policy.

“As well, they do not have available the players like Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and David Beckham inside the club, because youth talent is spread more through 20 clubs than it was 20 years ago.”
