Wenger bristles over Klopp 'circus'

ANGRY Arsene Wenger is feeling the heat and has dismissed the headlines surrounding Jürgen Klopp's decision to quit Borussia Dortmund as "a circus".

With Arsenal right up at the top of the betting as a likely destination for European football's great eccentric, Wenger is clearly irritated with the speculation surrounding his position.

Asked to comment on Klopp's imminent departure from Borussia Dortmund, Wenger snapped at reporters gathered to hear his thoughts on the upcoming FA Cup semi- final against Reading.

"I am not an agency to place managers. I find that circus a bit ridiculous, honestly," he said, clearly annoyed.

Wenger is just the first to face the Klopp question over the next few days and if his reaction is a template, Manuel Pellegrini and Brendan Rodgers must also be looking nervously at the bookmakers' odds on the German's ultimate destination and bracing themselves for hard questions.
