Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger nearly falls for April Fool’s hoax [video]

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger gave his pre-Liverpool press conference on Thursday with the international break very close to being over.

The Gunners are in excellent form having lost just twice since the turn of the calendar year.

Arsenal host Liverpool at the Emirates on Saturday lunchtime, looking to go a step closer to securing a top four finish.

During the pre-match presser, Wenger was asked about Per Mertesacker doing a live pre-match team talk ahead of the Liverpool clash.

Yet, this whole story was an April Fools’ and the press officer came to the aid of Wenger.

Was the journalist unaware it was an April Fools’ or was he trying to catch out the Arsenal boss?
