The Frenchman thinks that English clubs are being penalised.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says football authorities are not doing enough for English clubs as the Gunners face four games in 12 days.
After drawing Liverpool in the FA Cup fifth round, the north London club now face the Reds in the Premier League on February 8, before Manchester United four days later and then the Merseyside outfit again, followed by Bayern Munich in the Champions League – all by February 19.
All of these matches are vital if Wenger’s men are to compete in the three competitions they are left in and the boss clearly fears that the side could be eliminated from the cups and fall behind in the title race; as they did last year.
The authorities in France, Portugal and Spain all rearrange fixtures to help their teams that are playing in Europe, but in England this doesn’t happen.
Wenger has even appealed to Uefa for help in the matter, but has had no luck and now the 64-year-old is angry at the situation.
“In the other leagues they do help teams. I’ve already suggested in UEFA meetings to make sure that in Champions League competitions that the teams before have the same amount of rest,” the Frenchman was quoted by the Mirror.
“In some championships, for example in Portugal, they cancelled the games sometimes, they did what they wanted. The game before the Champions League, they cancelled the game.
“For the competition maybe it would be better that all of the teams would have exactly the same amount of rest.
“In small injuries, you gain 24 hours and it can make a difference. Also, mental recovery is better. Sometimes after a game you go on a high.”
