Wenger accepts sacrifices for TV


London — Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says clubs should accept the fixture list being dictated by television companies after Manchester United counterpart Alex Ferguson complained about the power of broadcasters.

Ferguson said Monday clubs have shaken "hands with the devil" by allowing TV to schedule English games. Wenger countered that if the Premier League wants to "stay the best league in the world you need to make sacrifices."

The Frenchman says Tuesday that "we have to play at 12:45 on Saturday . . . because in Asia they can watch us and I am happy to do that."
