The Gunners will face Man City in the League Cup final at Wembley Stadium on Sunday evening.

The Citizens are still on track to win the treble, as they are running away with Premier League and are still in the UEFA Champions League.

When asked if Guardiola has raised the bar, Wenger told reporters, "No, because you look at Barcelona and they are still the best team in Europe," he told UK newspapers.

"You have to accept that the modern game has changed with the recruitment of the best players in a short number of clubs.

"We, as managers, can maybe impart our philosophy but this game belongs to the players because the importance of the players has become bigger than ever before."

What is to unearth talent,is it buying players from the so called weaker or smaller leagues to bigger and well established leagues or promoting players from development to the first team, if it's the latter then pep excell because he promoted thiago alcantara from barca development to first team and now he is one off the best midfielders

I'm not Mou fanatic, but dude can spot talent than Pep, eg-unknown players comes world known players, Ozil,De Maria,Conzalo H,khedira,Matic,Willian,Marcel lo, Drogba,FMalouda,Alex,Cambiaso, DMelito ect they were unknown till Mou spotted then, Mou don't buy success, what abt ur Pep? A Wenger is 100%Right.

This madala mara has been sleeping in the past 8 years. The manager is rhe leader with his philosophy. He builds a team to dominate whichever league he is in. Thats what pep has done.
