Are you sure, Arsene? ‘I can’t fault their effort’, says Wenger after Arsenal crash out to League Two Bradford on penalties
Arsene Wenger insisted Arsenal’s players should not feel embarrassed despite the Gunners losing the Capital One Cup quarter-final to a Bradford team which cost a total of £7,500 in transfer fees.
The League Two side (4th division), currently 64 places lower than the Gunners, triumphed 3-2 on penalties after the match ended 1-1 after extra time at Valley Parade.
Only one Bradford player commanded a transfer fee – James Hanson, from who cost £7,500 from non-league Guiseley plus the proceeds of a friendly.
