Wenger defends trophy record

Published 1 Comments

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has defended the achievements of his side in recent years and believes Champions League qualification has as much merit attached to it as winning a domestic cup competition, if not more.

Chief executive Ivan Gazidis, chairman Peter Hill-Wood and majority shareholder Stan Kroenke were all heckled at the club's annual general meeting on Thursday over the club's financial strategy and failure to win a trophy since 2005. However, in his own address, Wenger insisted the club had not stood still in their barren years.

Wenger said: "For me, there are five 'trophies' - the first is to win the Premier League, the second is to win the Champions League, the third is to qualify for the Champions League, the fourth is to win the FA Cup and the fifth is to win the League Cup."
