Arsenal happy with 'ample stewarding'
Arsenal maintain they are satisfied with the security arrangements around the dugouts at Emirates Stadium, following criticism from Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Red Devils boss was less than impressed by what he perceived as a hostile reception from home supporters positioned behind the away team during this afternoon's Barclays Premier League game, which ended 2-2, declaring 'it is absolutely disgraceful the abuse you and your staff take' and there is 'absolute danger here'.
It is understood the banter between the away dugout and home supporters was less than sportsmanlike at times, with one Arsenal fan ejected as a result.
However, a spokesperson for the Gunners tonight insisted more than adequate measures are in place to deal with any situations which arise.
'Stadium security is of the highest importance and Arsenal Football Club feel there is ample stewarding around the dugout area,' the Arsenal spokesperson told PA Sport.
'However, the club does recognise that some exchanges which takes place can be of an aggressive nature, and there was an incident this afternoon where one supporter was ejected.
'As a club we do expect a certain level of behaviour.
'There is also CCTV which monitors the area which our stadium management crew do review in detail after games, and if necessary the club will take further action.'
