BBC Sport - Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hits back at Lukas Podolski claim

Wenger denies Podolski claim

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger denies he disrespected Lukas Podolski and says he let the striker go out on loan because he is overstocked with attacking players.

The Germany international, who has joined Inter Milan on loan, claimed Wenger did not say goodbye to him after the deal was completed.

Wenger also comments on Wojciech Szczesny allegedly smoking a cigarette in the dressing room, insisting the goalkeeper will learn from his mistakes.
