London, Nov 2: Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted that his club’s calculated 40,000,001-pound summer bid for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez was provocative.
According to the Mirror, on the eve of the Reds’ first-versus-third visit to the Emirates, Gunners boss Wenger make a frank admission about his club’s summer pursuit of the Uruguayan, conceding that it was not the subtlest thing they had ever done.
Arsenal made the bid in July believing it would trigger a release clause in Suarez’s contract but the advice they were given proved misplaced, the report said.
However, Wenger said that he was very happy with what he did and he hopes the details will come out one day, maybe not in his book but somebody else’s book. (ANI)
