Wenger chides abusive fans over Hull
But that does not justify berating Brown, according to Wenger, himself often a target for vitriol from supporters of other clubs. The Frenchman told his club’s website: “Once again, I’m a guy who can have something happen which is very bad and the next day I’ve forgotten about it. I’m not someone who remembers things for six months.”
Meanwhile, Wenger was surprised that it was Denilson that scored the Gunners’ opener over the weekend against City. The Brazilian was not meant to take the free-kick from which he netted with an impressive strike.
“I was puzzled that Denilson took the free-kick,” the coach explained. “Maybe Nasri was going to take it but he had a problem.
“They know who takes the free-kicks, Robin van Persie is number one, Cesc Fabregas number two or (Samir) Nasri. (Tomas) Vermaelen goes for long distance.”
