Ryan Shawcross has accused Arsenal Manager, Arsene Wenger, of having a personal vendetta against him after 'that' incident last season.

Wenger went on the attack in February last season after the Stoke defender was sent off for a clumsy tackle which broke Aaron Ramsey's leg.

The Frenchman hit out at Shawcross and his teammate Robert Huth, after their game against Spurs, as he claimed that they had repeatedly fouled keeper Heurelho Gomes.

Shawcross has had enough of the bitching from Wenger and has said: "He's obviously got something against me. It's just weird.

"He seems to have a problem with Stoke. Criticism doesn't bother me, unless it's a false accusation like this one.

"I don't mind people having their opinions but if it's not a game involving his players, then I don't see the point."

Maybe Arsene Wenger should concentrate on his own team, who will be struggling to win the League or even finish 2nd.

The leg breaking tackle last season was clearly an accident, as the evidence was shown on Shawcross' face when he left the pitch in tears.

He has said sorry to Ramsey about the tackle and that it was not his intention to injure the Arsenal player.

Yet Wenger is still attacking Shawcross at any opportunity. Many Stoke fans must be thinking, "get a life Wenger, and concentrate on your own team".
