Arsenal up and down 2011-2012 season the 'strangest' for Arsene Wenger
London, May 13 (ANI): Arsene Wenger has described the up and down 2011-12 season of football as the "strangest" since his debut in English football as manager16 years ago.
Arsenal lost four out of their first seven games, including an 8-2 humiliation at the hands of Manchester United.
However, they managed to recover, sufficient enough to go into today's last game against West Bromwich Albion where if they gain victory, they would be third in the Premier League rankings and be eligible for qualification for the Champions League qualification next season.
"It has been the strangest because there were changes throughout the season, it looked first of all for us like we were battling relegation and then at the last game of the season we are battling for a Champions League position," The Telegraph quoted Wenger, as saying.
"Manchester City looked like they would cruise easily to the league and then suddenly they had lost it, and nobody understood quite why," he added.
The Holloway club manager noted that it was Robin van Persie 'who kept the team above water' and took the club to victory in most of the matches.
"The team has grown in quality during the season and the results in the second half have been much stronger. Overall, the exceptional season of Robin van Persie kept us above water. Scoring more than 30 goals is something exceptional," he said. (ANI)
