Arsène Wenger faced the media on Tuesday afternoon ahead of the Champions League clash with Olympiacos.

Here's a round-up of some of the manager's quotes. For the main headlines, visit our Digest page:

on his touchline ban in Europe…
Ideally I would like to be on the bench, but we speak about everything before the game [in terms of] what can happen. I don't think it is a massive handicap, it would not be an excuse for a bad performance.

on Santi Cazorla’s form...
We are all over the moon with Santi Cazorla. We are happy with him. He is not only an exceptional football player, but as well an exceptional person who is every day happy to play, to practice and has a very good team attitude. We are very, very happy with him.

The problem for Santi Cazorla is that if he was Finnish of course he would play [fpr the national team]! If he was English as well,  but Spain at the moment is gifted with so many good midfielders that it is very difficult to get into the team. Even there, I think he plays in some games and I hope in the future he will play more.
