Pep Guardiola has dismissed Arsene Wenger’s concerns that “some teams are on holiday” ahead of Manchester City’s remaining fixtures against West Brom and Watford.
Wenger seemingly hit out at West Ham, who lost 4-0 to Arsenal’s rivals for the top four, Liverpool, on Sunday.
“I never saw one player in my life go to the pitch and don’t try to win the game and when the target is done, it’s done,” Guardiola said on Monday. “But if you don’t want that, win more games yourself, or qualify before or win the Champions League, and after we don’t have the problems with the other ones.
“He [Wenger] plays against Everton and Sunderland, no? Both teams are done, no? 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 in the season and you will not have this problem.”
