"It is difficult for us to accept that, but the rules are on the sides of the federation, and we cannot do anything about it.
"But I have let them know that it is not logical that he plays for the first team and the Under-21s during the holiday period, they finish on June 28 and we start training on July 6.
"Of course he wants to play, and I can understand that as well."
Wenger believes he has the understanding of England coach Fabio Capello, but not the U-21 boss Stuart Pearce, adding: "That is because Capello uses him and then after it is a problem for Stuart Pearce.

Pearce is expected to reduce his provisional 29-man squad to 23 on Wednesday.
