Nearly 24 hours after the cup final defeat Arsene Wenger still hasn’t managed to get a wink of sleep.
Man City humiliated Arsenal at Wembley in the Carabao Cup final and Gary Neville could not contain himself in his criticism of the Gunners.
Unofficial insider and Wenger’s gardener Lee Satchell has confirmed Neville has set up a tent outside Wenger’s house to continue to berate the Arsenal boss for his team’s display.
With hordes of Gooners already on their way to Hector Bellerin’s house with pitch forks, Neville took it upon himself to hammer home the point to the manager.
The Arsenal players disappeared at Wembley as City punished them with a virtuouso display of passing and finishing, helped all the way by schoolboy level Arsenal defending.
Neville hit the roof in commentary continuously describing the team as a disgrace and spineless, with a particular level of anger reserved for the performances of Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey.
But now Satchell has revealed that Neville demanded that his car take him straight to Wenger’s house from Wembley.
“I was trimming Arsene’s bush into he shape of a four, just like he asked me, when I heard a car screech into the drive way and someone with a Manchester accent shouting at the top of his voice.
“I poked my head over the fence to see Gary Neville making the taxi driver put together a tent while he dissected how badly Granit Xhaka played through a megaphone.
“The noise was deafening and I went in to see Arsene, who was getting his wife to take a picture of him with last year’s FA Cup.
“He said Neville couldn’t see that Xhaka did exactly what he was instructed to and to ignore Neville until he goes away.
“It’s been nearly 24 hours now and all I can hear outside is a constant babbling of ‘disgrace’ and ‘spinless’ peppered with a few rants about Xhaka.”
Satchell added that Wenger has been trying to locate his players since the game as they all seemed to have gone missing.
The Frenchman was the only person to turn up to training on Monday after Steve Bould called in saying he had a ’24 hour bug’.
