Arsenal coach almost committed suicide after a playing out a thrilling 2-2 draw with Chelsea on Wednesday night at the Emirates stadium, but Chelsea almost won it at the death.
In his post match interview, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger controversially claimed that he would have killed himself had Davide Zappacosta’s late shot sealed three points for the Blues.
The visitors hit back after Jack Wilshere’s first Premier League strike in over two years with goals via Eden Hazard and Marcos Alonso, before Hector Bellerin restored parity late on.
There was one more twist in the tale, however, when Zappacosta crashed a long-range shot against the bar.
“I would have committed suicide,” Wenger told reporters after the final whistle when asked what he would have done if that effort went in.
“It was a great football game, we have shown great mental resources, I knew the last 20 minutes would be tough.”
