Wenger on Fabianski regret
Arsene Wenger has revealed that he didn’t want backup ‘keeper Lukasz Fabianski to leave Arsenal this summer, ahead of the Gunners’ clash with Swansea City this weekend.
The Frenchman revealed to his club’s official website that he wanted the Polish stopper to fight for a place with first-choice Wojciech Szczesny, though admitted that he understood Fabianski’s desire to leave and find regular game-time elsewhere.

Khan comments on Alexander
Amir Khan has played up the importance of his December showdown with Devon Alexander, describing the fight as a make or break event.
The Bolton born Olympic silver medallist will face off against long-term rival Alexander at the MGM Grand on the 13th of next month, with the winner aiming to get a shot against pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather. Khan has looked resurgent since hiring trainer Virgil Hunter, but a loss in his upcoming clash could be devastating for his career plans.
Hamilton wants Button stay
F1 giant Lewis Hamilton has insisted that McLaren should retain the services of Jenson Button, and described his rival as “better than most drivers.”
At the moment Button’s future with McLaren is looking uncertain, and he has himself refused to confirm that he’ll be staying in the sport once this season is up. However Hamilton believes that McLaren would be foolish to let the 34-year-old go, and said that Button still had plenty of time to record more success in the sport if given the chance.
