Arsenal Football Club Manager, Arsene Wenger, yesterday in a post-match interview, said he would have probably committed suicide after his side’s first game of the New Year against Chelsea almost ended in defeat.
The North London club, which drew the first blood via a Jack Wilshere goal in the 63rd minute, had to settle for a 2-2 draw with the visitors.
Earlier in the 67th minute, Chelsea drew level via a penalty kick converted by Eden Hazard and saw themselves in front courtesy of a Marcos Alonso strike in the 84th minute but the visitor’s victory party was thwarted by Hector Bellerin, who more than made up for conceding the penalty in the first place, as his stunning strike from the edge of the box in the nick of time, earned the Gunners a hard fought draw at home.
Speaking shortly after the match, Arsene Wenger, whose side now seat sixth on the EPL table; five points behind fourth placed Liverpool and 23 points behind league leaders Manchester City, said that he would’ve gone home and probably committed suicide had his side lost to Chelsea at the Emirates.
“I don’t know… maybe I would’ve gone home and commit (sic) suicide tonight”, Wenger jokingly told journalists at the post-match press briefing.
The Arsenal manager, however, admitted to being close to “shock” in the dying minutes of the match before his side drew level.
