Arsene Wenger reacts to Erik Lamela wondergoal in classic style

Arsene Wenger In Emirates Press Conference 2

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger gave a textbook answer when asked about Erik Lamela's goal for Tottenham Hotspur last night.

Magic, wizardry, sorcery or a true desire not to use his right foot. Call it what you want, but Erik Lamela's goal for Tottenham Hotspur against Asteras Tripolis last night was superb.

The ball ran out to him on his wrong foot so from the edge of the box he pulled off a Rabona goal, wrapping his left-foot around the back of his right boot to poke the ball beyond the hapless Asteras goalkeeper.

It was a sensational goal that had bums off seats and grins on faces across the country. Apart from Mauricio Pochettino. It was hard to tell whether he was too stunned to celebrate or if somebody has took a wee on his Christmas tree.

But while the jam was out of Pochettino's doughnut, at least he has seen the wonder-strike.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has gained a reputation over the years for having 'selective viewing'.

Usually it came out when one of his Arsenal players had done something they shouldn't have, however, Wenger has always seen it when something has happened to an Arsenal player. Selective viewing indeed.

But when asked during the Arsenal press conference this morning what he thought of Erik Lamela's goal for Spurs, rather than praise rivals Tottenham Hotspur, he reverted to type:

"I didn't see it. I was watching another game."

Classic Arsene...
