Published Add your comment

Arsenal supporters, hello and welcome.

It may just seem like any old Tuesday to you - and it is, in many respects - but that doesn’t mean we aren’t busy working on ways to improve your experience here at GiveMeSport.

We’ve created a neat little round-up packed full of the latest information. You should find most of it, if not all of it, interesting. Let us know your thoughts in the box provided below.

Arsene Wenger recently criticised the prestigious Ballon d’Or ceremony, stating that he was against it as it can lead players to turmoil through their desire to win personal awards.


Well, the reigning Ballon d’Or king, one Cristiano Ronaldo, has retorted, stating that although he respected Wenger’s opinion, that was as far as it went.

"[Those are his] opinions. I respect opinions but that's it," - Ronaldo.

The Portuguese superstar has won the coveted trophy three times and is vying for a fourth next year - it’s safe to assume none of Wenger’s pupils will come close to taking it away from him.

Perhaps the Ballon d'Or gala should be cancelled to stop a repeat of this:
