Former Arsenal manager slammed Fernandinho for ‘provoking’ Angel Di Maria in Manchester City’s Champions League semi-final against Paris Saint-Germain and said he ‘didn’t like his behavior “.

Di Maria was sent off for violent conduct in PSG’s 2-0 loss to Man City at the Etihad after a clash with Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho.

Wenger told beIN SPORTS: “I have to say I don’t like the way Fernandinho behaved tonight. It is provocative.

“If you fire Di Maria, you also have to fire Fernandinho, for me.

“He should have already had a yellow card and then he was provoking Di Maria. They both should have been gone.

Manchester City beat PSG 2-1 in Paris and were the dominant team again at the Etihad on Tuesday night, with Riyad Mahrez’s brace sending them into their first Champions League final.

Commenting on City’s 4-1 overall victory, Arsenal legend Wenger added: “Overall Manchester City had fewer weaknesses than PSG.

You could say that PSG tonight have played well, they have shown superior quality in some aspects of their game but have been caught twice by counter attacks.

“Overall I would say for them now it’s important to analyze where they can improve, and that’s in the back. Defense, at the moment, is not good enough to win the Champions League.

“They have enormous potential, but this is where they need to fix it. They also need to become more calm and focused.

“We can’t ignore that they finished both games with ten men. So it’s repeated too. They need to improve their discipline when things are not going well.

Manchester City, who could become Premier League champions this weekend, will face Chelsea or Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 29.

Former City goalkeeper Joe Hart told BT Sport: “It’s a huge moment, people say this club doesn’t have a history at European level and it doesn’t. , but he has a real soul – people have been through their ups and downs.

“It’s a process and I’m really happy for the fans. It’s a huge and well-deserved moment, but it’s not done. It is not a club that wants to qualify for the finals, it is a club that wants to win the finals. “
