Man City boss, Pep Guardiola Fires Back At Arsene Wenger Over Top Four Battle - 4 years ago
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has hit out at Arsene Wenger over claims that the teams are on ‘holiday’ after Liverpool thumped West Ham United 4-0 last Sunday. The Gunners are at the risk of not making top four and qualifying for the Champions League with Liverpool and Manchester City having better chances of making the cut ahead of Arsenal who will be hoping both teams slip against teams in the final two games of the season. In relation to this, Arsene Wenger has claimed that teams have gone on holiday as they have nothing to fight for at this stage of the season. But Pep Guardiola thinks otherwise, he said: ‘I never saw one player in my life go to the pitch and not try to win the game, ‘Arsenal play against Sunderland and Everton – one is relegated and one is in the Europa League – so it is the same situation. ‘One is relegated and one is in the Europa League, so it’s the same situation. If you don’t want to complain, do it better during the season and you will not have this problem.’ Manchester City will play West Brom at the Etihad on Tuesday while the Gunners play Sunderland at the Emirates at same time.
