Although Wenger understands the former Juventus chief's frustrations, the Frenchman insists that the problem could have been avoided had Chelsea not loaned out so many players during the summer months.
"Maybe he has the opposite problem [to Arsenal] but if you look at the number of players that are out on loan, they can call a few back," he told Sky Sports News. "I have sympathy for him. But do I feel sorry for Chelsea because they don't have enough players? Then no."
