Wenger attacks Fabregas ‘witch hunt’

Angry Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger claimed on Friday that his skipper
Cesc Fabregas, pictured in 2010, has become the target of a witch hunt.
The 23-year-old midfielder was at the centre of controversy in
midweek when he was involved in an angry confrontation with match
officials after Everton striker Louis Saha scored despite being in an
offside position.
After the match at the Emirates, in which
Arsenal hit back to win 2-1, Everton manager David Moyes claimed
Fabregas made unrepeatable comments to the officials.
Asked if he thought there was a witch hunt against the Spanish international, Wenger replied: “Yes.
“We are long enough in the job to know that somebody picks on you for a while, and you are in the heat of the moment.
“But for me what is the most important is the player behaves well.
“When Cesc is on the pitch, he tries to play football – I cannot say everybody who plays against him tries to do that.
“For
example, some people reproach him for not exchanging shirts with a
player after the game – but I hope he will not exchange shirts with
players who try to kick him for 90 minutes and them come to say ‘please
can I get your shirt?’
“I think that is a normal and natural reaction.
“Overall this guy is an example on the football pitch and shows you how to play football.”
He added: “People are more demanding, and Cesc has to live with that.
“It is not easy, but he is a very intelligent man and he will learn very quickly to cope with that.
“Cesc is 24 this year, he has played 250 games in the Premier League – at that age, it is absolutely remarkable.
“He has gone through a lot, difficult moments, but has always come out stronger – this guy is a fantastic leader.”
