Arsene Wenger has finally talked about the two-year ban handed Manchester City from all UEFA competitions over breaches of Financial Fair Play regulations.
The former Arsenal boss in a dig aimed at the Citizens by claiming that they bought all of his players during his time at North London.
Speaking to the Laureus Sports Awards on Monday, Wenger said: “My belief is that sport is about trying to win by respecting the rules,' he added. 'We celebrate the best in every sport-but only if we know the winners respect the rules.
“If there is no respect then it's not a real sport. The table is always linked to the number of money clubs spend on players.”
Wenger added: “I don't know if it is planned to take City's title away because I don't know the rules well enough.
“But the difference between the big clubs and the smaller clubs has become bigger - and we can now predict with accuracy what is going to happen in every league.”
The Frenchman has historically been critical of City and their high spending, accusing them of 'financial doping' when he was Arsenal boss after they signed a number of his top players including Emmanuel Adebayor, Kolo Toure, Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna.
