Sky Sports pundit Merson criticised his old team following their 3-3 Champions League draw with Anderlecht – where the Belgians somehow recovered from 3-0 down at half-time at the Emirates.
“This is not the first time it’s happened, it’s happened a lot.
“The players are all internationals, they’re not little kids. They play in World Cups and the Premier League but they are all bombing forward. Clueless.”
And that elicited a dismissive response from Wenger who believes he’s got no time for criticisms from ex-players who have never managed.
“I managed him. I tried him. I’m not interested in Paul Merson.
“Honestly, it does not matter to me. You are free. You can say what you like.”
