Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has expressed displeasure over Fernandinho’s behaviour that led to Angel Di Maria’s red card during Manchester City’s Champions League semi-final win over Paris Saint-Germain
Wenger said he ‘did not like how he [the Brazilian] behaved’.
Di Maria was given the marching orders for violent conduct during PSG’s 2-0 defeat to the Premier League leaders at the Etihad.
Wenger told beIN SPORTS, “I have to say I don’t like how Fernandinho behaved tonight. It’s provocative.
“If you send Di Maria off, you have to send Fernandinho off as well, for me. He should already have had a yellow card and then he was provoking Di Maria.
“They both should have been off.”
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City now wait patiently for the winner of the other semi final match between Chelsea and Real Madrid. The first leg ended 1-1 apiece in Spain.
