Wenger apologises for United mauling

Arsene Wenger has apologised to the Arsenal fans for their humiliating defeat at Old Trafford on Sunday.

• Legends slam sorry Gunners
• Wenger refuses to quit
• Wenger boys taught a lesson
• Manchester Utd 8-2 Arsenal

The Gunners conceded eight goals for the first time since 1896 as they suffered a catastrophic 8-2 loss at Manchester United.

It was a result that prompted extreme criticism from fans and pundits alike, but Wenger has insisted he will not walk away from what is clearly a massive job to rebuild the confidence of a club who are still to find replacements for Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri, and have collected just a single point from their three Premier League games so far.

The Arsenal boss has pledged to try and find some new players ahead of the transfer window closing on Wednesday night. However, for now, the best he can do is say sorry.

''The fans do not want to see their team like that,'' Wenger told Arsenal World. ''We can only apologise and come back in our strength and desire in the next game.

''Big scores are humiliating and difficult to swallow but I don't think they have a special meaning. They are always under special circumstances.''

For Wenger, those special circumstances were a lengthy injury list, which robbed him of the services of Jack Wilshere, Thomas Vermaelen and Bacary Sagna amongst others, plus the suspensions of Alex Song, Gervinho and Alex Frimpong.

The visit of Swansea immediately after the international break offers the perfect opportunity for a morale-boosting victory, although for now, skipper Robin van Persie accepts his team-mates have to face up to some pretty harsh facts.

''It is an honest result if you look at the game,'' said the Gunners captain. ''It sounds crazy maybe but Manchester United were much better than us and they punished us hard.

''We were simply not good enough. We have to deal with that. I don't think we can hide behind injuries or suspensions. It is no excuse. They had injuries too, this is football.''
