Stoke pursue Wenger complaint

Stoke chief executive Tony Scholes has revealed the club plan to pursue their complaint against Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

Wenger has come in for criticism after he accused Stoke defenders Ryan Shawcross and Robert Huth of using "rugby" tactics against Tottenham goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes, and the Potters subsequently complained to The FA and Premier League.

No action has been taken against Wenger for his remarks, but Scholes is determined to continue to press forwards with the complaint.

"Many of you will have seen the comments made by Arsene Wenger in which he was critical of the club generally and Ryan Shawcross in particular," he said. "We have written to him objecting to these comments and have asked for an apology.

"Much as we respect Arsene Wenger, we cannot allow him to continue criticising us in this way. Therefore, in the absence of any apology, we will continue with our complaint, even though it has been reported that the FA will take no action.

"We cannot accept that. It is not right that anyone in the game can criticise one of our players without reproach."
