Read some extra quotes from Arsène Wenger's pre-match press conference. For more headlines, visit our Digest page.
on whether he would sell Petr Cech if he was Jose Mourinho…That’s a very tricky question because we are not interested in anybody at the moment.
on other clubs signing players early…We will start at the end of the season.
on getting money for Vermaelen if Barcelona win Champions League…You have somebody who checks all our contracts! I have to [check] the contract, I cannot tell you that.
on Vermaelen’s injury problems…Honestly no [I did not know about that]. Thomas Vermaelen left for one single reason, in the end he did not get the number of games and he is a top-quality player. Then we could not predict he would be injured for such long time.
I hope for him and for Barcelona next season he can play. He is back in full training and I am sure he will show next season that he can play.
