Arsène Wenger is unconcerned by the takeover talk surrounding Arsenal at the moment.
In the past week, media reports have suggested the Club might follow Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool by selling out to foreign investors.
By way of reaction, Managing Director Keith Edelman re-iterated the Board's "love and commitment" for the Club, dismissing the story as "speculation". Wenger used the same word in describing his feelings during his pre-match press conference on Friday.
"It doesn't worry me at all," said Wenger. "Apart from speculation you don't know how much truth is in there.
"It is true that the shares are moving and they have risen a lot in price. But that is more to the credit of our policies. If you look at the level of the shares 10 years ago and where they are today then you can be actually quite proud of the increase."
