Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger insisted he was not embarrassed at the Gunners' Capital One Cup quarter-final defeat to a Bradford team which cost a total of £7,500 in transfer fees.
The League Two side, currently 64 places lower than the Gunners, triumphed 3-2 on penalties after the match ended 1-1 after extra time at Valley Parade.
Only one Bradford player commanded a transfer fee - James Hanson, from who cost £7,500 from non-league Guiseley plus the proceeds of a friendly.
Asked if his players felt embarrassed, Wenger said: "You feel embarrassed when you don't give everything but I feel the team did fight and they will be more disappointed and frustrated."
