Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger laid into Barcelona president Sandro Rosell about his pursuit of Cesc Fabregas in a brief meeting in South Africa yesterday, according to Sport.
Fabregas, 23, has been at the centre of a tug of war between the sides, with the La Liga champions seeing a £29 million bid angrily rejected last month. New Barca supremo Rosell had arrived in the country on Friday to speak to the Frenchman but was met with an angry response when they finally came face-to-face.
Wenger told the 46-year-old how disappointed he was with the public pursuit of his skipper and how this hadn't stopped despite the departure of ex-leader Joan Laporta.
Rosell was told in no uncertain terms that Arsenal were no prepared to sanction the sale of their star midfielder.
