Arsene Wenger admits Arsenal shot themselves in the foot in Wednesday’s defeat at Porto but insists Lukasz Fabianski’s display will take a private analysis.
The Polish goalkeeper had a match to forget as he compounded the shame of an own-goal with another error which capped Porto’s second in their 2-1 victory.
But Wenger intends not to copy the acts of fellow managers Harry Redknapp (on Pavlyuchenko) and Jose Mourinho (on Balotelli) by reacting to a player’s blunder in public.
“I do not want to come out individually on Lukasz’ performance tonight and judge him in front of everybody.” Wenger said.
“I believe that you have to accept that you lose as a team and win as a team. Any individual performance has not to be analysed publically.”
