Two managers: one castigated for not speaking to the press one lambasted for speaking his mind. Whether one believes that either stance/view is right or wrong, at the heart of things is poor/dodgy refereeing and corrupt organisation.
EUFA and the FA are two of the most corrupt bodies in professional sport ; not forgetting FIFA, and their application of rules and inherent favouritism (and yes that favouritism has been for Arsenal & Man Utd on occasion) borders on the maniacal.
In Football there are laws that Referees and their assistants are there to enforce. In the running of the beautiful game there are principals along with realities of commerce that need to be upheld; principally fairness and yes, sportsmanship.
Corruption underlines everything about FIFA, EUFA and the FA and to respond or not respond is a ‘damned if you do damned if you don’t’ situation.
Again I am not necessarily agreeing with everything connected to Wenger and
but the right to speak or not to should be a right. Ferguson
Referees will continue to be inconsistent with no comeback from the FA, EUFA will continue to favour certain clubs and make things difficult for certain national leagues and FIFA will continue to make it up as they go along.
The beautiful game is in the hands of barbarians.
