Pulis denies Wenger rift

Stoke City manager Tony Pulis has buried the hatchet with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger. After the Gunners lost at the Britannia Stadium in November, Wenger accused the Potters players of deliberately trying to injure his stars. However, when asked if there was still any animosity between the two managers, Pulis insisted: "He sent me a lovely letter when I did the (London) marathon, and also sent us an autographed shirt for the trust. "That was very, very kind of him." Pulis is also shocked by the abuse Wenger has been subjected to from a section of Arsenal fans this season, adding: "Supporters have got to be very careful. They get spoilt. Wenger is a top, top manager. "We're in a competitive sport and what Wenger's done at Arsenal has been remarkable. He's built the structure of the football club. "He'd done it not just on the pitch, but off the pitch. Not only has he put an identity on that football club, but he's now renowned throughout the world."
