Wenger sticks to his guns

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has vowed to stick by his policy of developing youngsters despite another trophy-less season for the north London club.
The Gunners' last chance of silverware this year was ended by the Champions League defeat to Manchester United in midweek.
But despite a clamour for Wenger to sign a few experienced players in key positions this summer, the Frenchman has vowed to stick to his guns.
"We are all very down and frustrated but it is not down to spending money. It is down to sticking with our policy," he claimed.
"Chelsea have spent magic money and still not won the European Cup.
"I believe our team has developed well but at the moment we are still a bit short.
"Of course I'll try to bring in one or two in the summer and whoever we get will not be short of experience.
"But the priority is to stay with the squad we have.
"What am I supposed to do, kick out a quality young player like Walcott, Fabregas, Diaby or Bendtner, who is already in his national team?"
