O'Neill still riled by Wenger

30 Jan 2010 - 11:29:33

Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill has continued his attack on Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger who called the Midlands outfit a long-ball team after the midweek goalless draw between the two sides.

O'Neill admitted after the stalemate that Wenger's comments had been insulting and, several days after the spat, continues to be riled by the outburst.

He was quoted in the Sun as saying: "Wenger has an opinion on everything. There is not a subject in this world at this minute - whether it is political, religious, anything - that he does not have an opinion on.

"He does say things for effect. You can get carried away with your own importance, you really can. Sometimes he does.

"After what he said about my team on Wednesday, I did go looking for him. I told him what I thought about what he had said. He has made a great contribution to the game here but he is not on a different planet.

"What he wants to do is try and point out to everyone who is under his spell that Arsenal are the only delightful team around."
