Arsene Wenger is under pressure at Arsenal and the cracks are beginning to appear after an unusually edgy and confrontational press conference in advance of Tuesday’s Champions League match against Olympiakos.
The Guardian’s David Hytner reported that Wenger was unusually testy in England (before the team’s flight to Greece) and in Greece (in the press conference, after they landed).
A win against Olympiakos will take the pressure off Wenger. Arsenal could finish top of the group if the Gunners win and Schalke fails to beat Montpellier.
