Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes the only way to stamp out malicious tackles in football is by handing out lengthy suspensions.

Wenger has no qualms with full-blooded challenges in the game where a genuine attempt to win the ball in made.

However, the vastly-experienced French tactician believes The Football Association needs to clamp down on tackles where a player deliberately goes out to harm a fellow professional.

Wenger, speaking in the wake of Wednesday's clash between Wigan and West Ham where referee Stuart Attwell dished out two reds cards and seven yellows, wants bans of 10 games and upwards introducing.

The 59-year-old is left shaking his head when players make poor tackles and then immediately deny any wrongdoing in a bid to worm their way out of going into the referee's notebook.

Accident

"An accident can happen when two people go for the ball but it is very rare," he told the Daily Mail. "What I see is that guys go into the tackle to hurt the player. There is not sufficient punishment.

"They could create a special committee to analyse if three games is enough because, in some tackles, 10 is not enough.

"Maybe we need to be stronger with our own players but sometimes you see the players make horrendous tackles and then say to the referee, "What's wrong there?"

"You think, "My friend, touch your head because you have completely lost touch with reality". It is unbelievable but they know what they have done."

Meanwhile, Wenger has stirred his rivalry with nemesis Sir Alex Ferguson by claiming Manchester United get too much protection from referees.

However, Arsenal's long-serving tactician also thinks that sometimes Ferguson's are not protected enough and that Cristiano Ronaldo is often singled out for attention.

"With Manchester United I am a bit cautious because sometimes I feel they get too much protection and sometimes they don't get enough," he continued.

Arrogance is provocative

"Ronaldo is a specific example of that. Sometimes his arrogance is provocative, and his class as well.

"I don't want to create a debate but when a player is not protected it's not right. When there is a bad tackle you have to be punished and sent off.

"Ronaldo is an easy target for the referees. It is easy to give decisions against him because he is such a great player and he is so celebrated.

"When he is away from home every crowd boos him, so he has to handle that. But it is not helping him."

perhaps if mr wenger left the men to play the football,he'd be better placed to have a go at everyone else...but he likes to play the kids...and thats great.....when they win....but they hardly do now....he seems to be a very jealous little man.....

they are sly tacklers.....and wenger knows it....:whistling:
Enough of the Wenger bashing young lady. ;) That goes for everyone too.

I'm not sure why I always feel compelled to defend him but I do.


I think it's because he reminds me of a better time. When Gentlemen laid down their coats for ladies.

Men who held the door open. When Chivalry was more than an obscure phrase. Good times. :)
