Wenger: 'It was two teams who played well defensively'

Last updated : 24 April 2010 By Chris Parry

"I am not used to games like this. We created very little chances. Man City did not create anything, were highly focused on defending and gave us no space. There were very few chances. It was two teams who played well defensively, had very good discipline but created very few chances."

"We could not find an opener. It was a locked game of very few chances, but we did not throw everything forwards blindly, because we knew we could not afford to lose.

"However, we are nearly there. It is 90% now, but not yet 100."

"Adebayor made it a bit lively, because our supporters also got lively. He was focused and motivated, sharp. Even then, though, they did not commit a lot and played on counter-attack."

"Maybe Sol will go to South Africa. I have to sit down with Sol and see what he wants to do next season. Since he has been in the team, he has been outstanding. I never expected that from him, and it is credit to him.

"You can compare Sol with any centre-back in the league. He has been very, very good."
