Wenger hopes for unity after Charlie Hebdo attack

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger hopes France remains united after the "dreadful and terrible" terrorist attack at the offices of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris this week.

"It is a dreadful and terrible situation," the Frenchman said.

"It is shocking. I think the whole country is shocked. France is a country with a freedom of speech, it has a big history and to think in a country like France you can die today because of your ideas and the way you want to speak is absolutely shocking.

"I hope at the moment that the whole country is united and I hope it will not create a divided country, the consequences of that would be terrible."

A supporter has been arrested after confronting Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger as his side crashed to a 2-0 defeat at Southampton.

The fan ran with his arms outstretched in front of the Gunners' boss as he sat in the dugout late on in the game at St Mary's.

Footage showed the man being bundled away down the tunnel by two stewards as Wenger held his arm out in apparent frustration at the intruder.

Police said a 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of "going into an area adjacent to the playing area contrary to the Football (Offences) Act 1991".

The suspect, from Lymington, Hampshire, is still being questioned by Hampshire Constabulary officers.

Wenger: Arsenal star Sanchez in 'the red zone'

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits star player Alexis Sanchez is "in the red zone" and at risk of injury.

The Chilean international has already played in 27 matches for club and country this season, but the forward's incredible form for the Gunners is making it impossible for Wenger to rest him.

Sanchez has averaged a goal every game in his last eight appearances for Arsenal, and has already netted on 14 occasions this term.
