Wenger hails 'one of my greatest victories'
READING, United Kingdom (AFP) - The League Cup may rank low on Arsene Wenger's priority list, but the Arsenal manager said his side's amazing fourth-round win at Reading was one of the greatest victories of his career.
Arsenal were heading out of the League Cup on Tuesday evening before launching an incredible comeback from 4-0 down to progress to the quarter-finals, as they bid to end their seven-year wait for a trophy.
The 12-goal thriller at the Madejski Stadium could go down as one of the best games in English football history. Theo Walcott inspired the amazing comeback to complete the turnaround and clinch a 7-5 win.
Wenger said: "We went from disaster to saving our pride. The fans stayed behind the team throughout and I have to give them credit. It was difficult to be worse in the second half than we were in the first. "Maybe this is one of my greatest victories. You cannot play for Arsenal and give up, no matter what the score.
