Wenger disagrees with former Manchester United boss’ version of ‘pizzagate’.
“Arsene had a thing about Van Nistelrooy,” wrote Ferguson.
But Wenger said today: “It’s difficult for me to answer any suggestion about this book because I haven’t read it yet. The ‘Pizzagate’, I think it was a little unrest in the corridor after the 49th game, refereed by Mike Riley at the time, who is now responsible for the referees.
“I think on that day, he had not his best day and that caused a lot of frustration because on that day, Rio Ferdinand should have been off after 20 minutes so I believe that’s what created all the problems in the corridor. Yes, it was aggressive because to lose the way we lost after such a long undefeated run was not acceptable for me and that’s why everybody was frustrated.”
