Part 17 – stay on the moral high ground

March 8, 2010

There is a spiritual as well as an intellectual side to Wenger. So, in his intermittently functioning eyes, it was only karma that Emmanuel Eboue should break three bones in John Terry’s foot in December 2007. Not only should Terry not have been on the pitch according to Arsene, the universe was already punishing him preemptively for his later marital indiscretions. Justice.

“I watched Eboue’s tackle again and I don’t think he wanted to ‘do’ John Terry,” said Wenger. “He touched him and I’m really sorry that John was injured. Ideally, Eboue shouldn’t have put his foot in there. We do not encourage our players to do that. But John Terry should not have been on the pitch at that time because his tackle on Fabregas was the worst of the match. But the referee did not see exactly the violence of the tackle. Terry got away with it.”
