Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger defends team's 'absurd' private jet journey ... -

She said in the Eastern Daily Press: "It is absolutely absurd. I cannot see any reason why they would have flown, other than it being a rather ostentatious display of the players' and the club's wealth.

"If the flight took 14 minutes, they must have spent more time just getting on and off the plane than in the air."

Arsenal, though, stand by the decision.

A spokesman for the club said: "The club considers all transport options available for the first team when travelling to an away fixture.

"Given the severe disruption to rail services at the weekend the most time efficient option was to fly, hence the first team made the journey by plane from London to Norwich."
