Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has insisted he does not have much respect for Arsenal and how they conduct themselves away from the football pitch.
City's FA Cup semi-final defeat to the Gunners over the weekend ended their hopes of a domestic treble this season.
In reaction to the result and Arsenal reportedly campaigning for the Manchester club to be banned from the UEFA Champions League, Guardiola did not mince his words when asked for his opinion about Mikel Arteta's side.
"And Arsenal, I have all the respect for what they are on the pitch, not much off the pitch, but on the pitch, a lot. Congratulations to them and good luck in the final," he said in a post-match press conference, as per The Athletic.
While City's case was being heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which ultimately saw the club's two-year European ban given to them by UEFA being overturned, Arsenal were reportedly one of the main drivers urging lawmakers to reject the club's appeal to play in continental competition.
With the London club's financial model not solely reliant on the money of rich owners, the Gunners have always been in favour of the stringent implementation of UEFA's Financial Fair Play rules.
