Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has maintained his stance that club captain Cesc Fabregas was misrepresented in a controversial media interview.

In an interview published in Spanish magazine Don Balon, Fabregas was quoted as hinting Wenger would have been sacked if he managed a club similar to Arsenal in Spain, due to the fact the club has not won a trophy since 2005.

Wenger responded, suggesting the author had twisted Fabregas’ words and that the club were ‘really upset about it’.

It led to the publishers of Don Balon to post audio of the interview on their website and release a statement stating they had made no changes to the transcript.

But on Friday, Wenger was still seething about the article and maintains the publication broke an agreement with the club.

“What they say is not interesting to us. They did not respect our agreement,” Wenger said.

“They will never get an interview from us again, ever.”

“I stand by my claim 100 percent. We had an agreement they had to send us copy for approval and it was not done.”

“I maintain completely that they did not respect our agreement. The article in itself I do not want to discuss.”
