Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insists there is no rift between him and his assistant Steve Bould.

Reports had surfaced of problems in the working relationship between Wenger and his backroom staff, as the Gunners' season hit a new low in midweek with the defeat to npower League Two side Bradford in the Capital One Cup.

The Frenchman dismissed any notion of a problem, however, and said: "We are a united staff team. We cannot control lies which are written."
