In a surprising admission, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has claimed responsibility for the part he played in the world banking crisis and recession. He has also admitted his guilt for the devastating earthquake in Japan, 9/11 and the Second World War.
Wenger's team have suffered their usual March/April collapse - falling out of contention in the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and losing in the Carling Cup Final. This has led the manager to allow the blame to pinned on his less than broad shoulders. A 2-1 defeat against Bolton ended their challenge for the title in the Premier League.
After the match, Wenger commented "I feel we were not good enough today, or throughout the season, to win the league title. We threw away our first trophy in several years. Blame me if you want, although I did not see this disappointing outcome." Wenger continued "I feel like Stuart Bagges when he was on The Apprentice. Everything he touched may have turned to sold, and that is what will happen here this summer."
The Arsenal manager then made his surprising claims.
