London, Aug.22 (ANI): Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that outrageous transfer claims by Spanish clubs are damaging football.
A power struggle at Barcelona between president Joan Laporta and his former No 2 Sandro Rosell has seen both men targeting Gunners midfield star Cesc Fabregas.
Asked about how much worth there was in these claims, The Sun quoted Wenger, as saying: "Apart from giving articles to newspapers, all the rest is rubbish. It doesn't help football; it doesn't help people to focus on their job. Sometimes it is quite destabilising."
"The way that Spanish clubs are run is more political than sport orientated. How much does that harm other clubs? It's difficult to measure, but it doesn't help other clubs," he added. (ANI)
