Pep Guardiola has leapt to the defence of Arsene Wenger in the wake of recent criticisms , saying it is unacceptable.
Wenger has been in charge of Arsenal for over 20 years, and his position as manager has come under scrutiny following the recent 5-1 loss to Bayern Munich.
Guardiola doesn’t feel the frenchman should be criticised and says it is disrespectful to his legacy.
When asked about his decision to make eight changes for Saturday’s 0-0 FA Cup fifth round draw at Huddersfield the City boss replied: “My friend, I take the decisions, you analyse my decisions.
“You have to take a decision before [the game], to the best solution. It was what I did. If you don’t agree, you can write it.
“What I hear in the last 10 days, about how people, ex-players, journalists, treat Arsene Wenger is unacceptable.
“Our job, in that moment, doesn’t have any respect for any position, so it is not respectable, what happened.
“That is why we take the decisions and you can say whatever you want.”
