Wenger beaten at home by Deloitte man
TS has a sneaking admiration for the way Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger almost always manages to keep his cool (present Mourinho argument excepted), even when his players are making a right mess of penalty kicks. But we hear he quite literally ‘lost the plot’ when informed that a Deloitte consultant had bought Arsenal’s home changing room and dugout.
The consultant from the Big Four Firm is one of the first people to purchase one of the new properties to be built at Arsenal’s Highbury ground when the team moves homes and the ground is converted into flats.
He even managed to snatch the most requested piece of real estate from under the Gallic nose of Arsène himself, who is widely reported to be jealous.
‘I’ll have to look elsewhere,’ he stated, when asked if he had considered purchasing that particular plot.
