"In sumo you never can tell who the guy who wins is", Wenger says. "I don't think so because it's not part of our culture". It happened to us, it happened to them and it's unfortunate.

"Is it people who have two years to go, one year to go, or three months to go?" For the rest, I can not tell you much more.
