Gartside tweets: “P*ss Off Wenger”.. then deletes it!
It’s all kicking off on the Cahill front as Arsenal have an offer rejected.
The bid was reported in the press as a £6 million bid for Bolton’s Gary Cahill. Bolton immediately turned down the bid and Coyle said “derisory doesn’t even cover it.” Wenger was quoted as saying that the figure mentioned in the press was not the true amount of the bid saying “it’s below what we spoke about.”
Then it came out on twitter that Phil Gartside had slammed Wenger over the cut price offer for the England International. Gartside’s words “piss off Wenger” were quickly retracted and removed from the site but not before eagle eyed journo’s and football fans had spotted it!
(Update: Gartside retweeted: ‘Arsenal are you taking the piss 6 million for Garry Cahill f*** right off!!’)
Word got back to Wenger who said, “If I see Gartside I’m going to F*ck him up!” Ok so Wenger didn’t say that but he did say…
“If Gartside can say I am lying I am ready to confront him. The truth is that we never speak about our negotiations.
“If a club doesn’t want to sell a player it can keep him.”
Wenger added, as reported in the independent, ”You only have to sell the player if you are all right with the price. It is not true. You can believe Gartside or you can believe me. It’s not right. It’s not the truth.”
Asked about if the bid was low Wenger replied, “you know me well.” And also when speaking of transfer fee amounts Wenger told the press, “It’s a secret”!
Let battle commence!
