Talk of replacing Wenger ridiculous: Ferguson
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.
