Arsenal's Wenger on Man U
Fri, 02 Nov 2012 9:31a.m.
Arsenal return to Old Trafford for the first time since their 8-2 hammering at the hands of Manchester United last season, which was the club's worst defeat since 1896.
Arsene Wenger insisted his team had got over the defeat and dismissed the idea of revenge, stating "the emotional meaning is big, but the footballing meaning was not very big and we have that behind us for a long, long time now."
Saturday's (Ukt) English Premier League match will be the first time that Arsenal will have come up against their former striker Robin van Persie since his summer move.
Van Persie has scored seven Premier League goals for United, which has helped them to second in the Premier League, six points ahead of Arsenal, who are sixth.
Wenger was asked what kind of reception he expected the Dutch international to receive from the Arsenal fans.
"I hope a respectful one because he has played for us for eight years, has done well, very well for us and you want him to be respected" he said.
The Arsenal boss was also concerned how the allegations against referee Mark Clattenburg had been handled and said "one of the great things in football, especially in England, is always you could sort out the problems you had internally" and added "it's always better to sort it out in the room".
