Arsenal boss criticises loan system as stars hope to pile misery on Gunners top four hopes

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has again slammed the current loan market rules as his team prepare to face a loan-riddled Everton side at Goodison Park this afternoon, as reported by the Daily Mirror.

Everton are set to play Chelsea loanee Romelu Lukaku and Man City borrowed star Gareth Barry in today’s major clash with foreign loan start Gerard Deulofeu and Lacina Traore also at the club.

Wenger feels that their former title rivals have an advantage in the league by allowing their unwanted stars to play against everyone else apart from themselves.

The Gunners boss feels the rules need to change ahead of their crunch game on Merseyside that could decide fourth place in the league.

“I believe that if you want to continue the system we have to make them available against the teams that loaned them out – or the system is not defensible,” Wenger said.

“It is just a protection of the clubs who loan the players out to hurt their opponents, when they have no risk at all.

“For a while you could decide when you loaned a player out whether he could play against you or not and I always decided ‘yes, he can play against us’.

“The system is the same for Chelsea, Arsenal and everybody else but the only question is ‘is the system right or not?’ It is open for debate.”
