Arsene Wenger still trying to persuade everyone that he has the best interests of Arsenal Football Club at heart when he tries to balance the books every season.
He recently stated that the Gunners need to make at least 15-20 million profit every year before he can invest in the transfer market, and as the club is just about to announce a six-monthly profit of 55 million he has certainly already passed that mark with half a season to go.
But he is not very happy that he is still being critized for simply doing his job correctly. He said: “What is unbelievable is that we run the model that should be absolutely normal and we look crazy. That is crazy,”
“People will do anything stupid, but we are not crazy, we are all right. We spend 1 if we make 1 and then people say ‘what are they doing?’ That is what is absolutely mad in our world, but the whole world is bankrupt because of that.”
The whole world is bankrupt? People will do anything stupid? Perhaps Wenger does sound a little crazy when he talks like that?
