Media must respect Wenger, other managers- Pep

Guardiola believes the way managers are treated by the media and former players is disrespectful, and used Wenger as an example of this unacceptable behaviour.

MANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Feb 20- Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has come to the defence of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, who has been met with heavy criticism recently.

Guardiola believes the way managers are treated by the media and former players is disrespectful, and used Wenger as an example of this unacceptable behaviour.

Wenger’s future at the Gunners has been called into question by the likes of former Arsenal defender Martin Keown, and former Manchester United centre-back Rio Ferdinand after the 5-1 hammering they received against Bayern Munich.

However, Guardiola thinks the comments are uncalled for.

“What I’ve heard in the last 10 days about how the people – former players and journalists – treated for example Arsene Wenger is unacceptable,” Guardiola told a news conference after City drew 0-0 with Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup.

“For me, our job at the moment, we don’t have any respect for any position. What happened was unacceptable. We take decisions and you can say whatever you want.”

Guardiola also had to endure criticism after his side failed to score against Huddersfield in a game which saw the Spaniard make eight changes to his team. They will now have an extra game to play at the Etihad Stadium for an FA Cup replay.

He added: “I take my decisions and you analyse them after, I have to take the decision before. The best solution was what I’d done.”
