Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg says that he can understand Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger's frustrations.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has claimed that he would never compare himself to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, but can understand the Frenchman's struggle.

Clegg, who is a Gunners supporter, has expressed his devastation in the North London side's 3-1 defeat to Bayern Munich in the first leg of the Champions League round-of-16 tie last night.

"I'm heartbroken," BBC Sport quotes Clegg as saying. "I'm heartbroken. I really am. I don't think [Wenger should quit]. I know what it's like to lead a team that goes through ups and downs. But I wouldn't compare myself to Arsene Wenger. He probably wouldn't like that."

Meanwhile, Arsenal are due to face Aston Villa at the Emirates in the Premier League this Saturday.
