London: Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has said that all talk in football circles that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger be sacked because of a lack of silverware in the club’s cupboard, is just plain ridiculous.

A daily quoted Fergie, as saying: "It`s a crazy world we`re in. It`s a critical world and you only need to lose a couple of games to have critics howling down at you.”
"All the talk is about Arsenal and Arsene leaving. But who can replace him? It`s the most ridiculous situation. The man has been simply unbelievable. He has given Arsenal platforms they never thought they`d get to,” he added.
"He should carry on. He shouldn`t listen to the critics. The one thing you need in this game is ear plugs," said Ferguson.
