Arsene Wenger dodged a question on Cesc Fabregas, after his transfer to Chelsea.
Cesc Fabregas has signed for Chelsea, and Arsene Wenger is the one man who could have stopped it.
The Frenchman clearly had his reasons, sporting or financial, for deciding not to bring back the midfielder, but declined an early opportunity to explain them.
Wenger was in Brazil for the World Cup, and one reporter did not miss the opportunity to try and quiz him on the biggest Premier League deal of the summer so far.
Wenger however, chose not to comment, avoiding the line of questioning from The Mirror's Oliver Holt.
Just spoke to Wenger at Arena Corinthians. Asked him if he was disappointed Fabregas joined CFC. "Nothing to say," he said with wave of hand— Oliver Holt (@OllieHolt22) June 12, 2014
The Arsenal boss will have had his reasons for not wanting to speak. Perhaps he simply wanted to enjoy his time off, or otherwise he knew it was a contentious situation and did not want to comment with the story at it's apex.
Wenger will not be able to avoid commenting and explaining his reasons forever, but he may realise that he will be on much more solid ground doing so, when the Gunners have acquired a couple of summer signings of their own.
