ARSENE HAS LOTS TO BE MAD ABOUT.

Byline: Gerry Armstrong

LIKE many people involved in the world of football, I have huge respect for all things Arsene Wenger.

What he has done for the Premier League is second only to Sir Alex Ferguson and he is a terrific guy into the bargain.

And that is why I was so annoyed at his petulance last week when he stormed down the tunnel, refusing to shake hands with Mark Hughes after his young side had been well beaten in the Carling Cup.

OK, he was upset about some incident during the match. But Arsene, for goodness sake, shake his hand and forget it!

k There is a lot to be said for being gracious in defeat and victory. Arsene (inset) is neither at the moment.

I can't help wondering why he had this reaction, though. I'm sure it is just a build-up of frustrations around the club.

He puts a lot of faith in his youngsters and they'd fallen short again. The FA Cup is now probably his only chance of silverware this season.

And this came in the same week as Robin van Persie was ruled out for five months.

But let's leave it at that. It was a misjudgement and nothing else.
