AS Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim admits Arsenal have left a sour taste, as he hits out at Gunners boss Arsene Wenger for refusing to congratulate his side for their victory in the first-leg at the Emirates Stadium.
The Ligue 1 outfit progressed to the quarter-finals of the Champions League on the away goal rule, despite a 2-0 defeat at the Stade Louis II on Tuesday night.
Jardim revealed that Wenger’s decision not to shake his hand has left him feeling bitter: “I wanted to shake Wenger’s hand [after the first leg] but he didn’t wait so, even though Monaco did everything for Arsenal, I decided not to thank him,” as quoted by Sky Sports.
He continued: “Arsenal didn’t show the respect they should have after the first leg.”
The Frenchman is renowned for tantrum throwing following a defeat, and his latest woeful exit from the Champions League, for a fifth successive season, has seen odds slashed for him to leave the managerial hot-seat.
