Champions League: Monaco manager says Wenger didn't show respect to them

Wenger did not shake the hand of Leonardo Jardim, the Monaco manager, following the 3-1 first leg defeat at The Emirates Stadium and no handshake was offered in return on Tuesday night after Arsenal were knocked out on the away goals rule, despite winning 2-0 on the night.

Asked about Wenger not shaking his hand after the first leg, Jardim said: “I think it was disrespectful. Right now we’re celebrating and we think Arsenal did not show enough respect during the first leg.

“In the first leg when I wanted to thank Arsene and shake his hand it’s true that Arsene didn’t shake my hand. So, even though Monaco did everything to make life comfortable for Arsenal, I decided not to thank him.

“Arsenal were really happy to play Monaco as we were supposed to be one of the weakest teams. We qualified from pot four. Arsenal thought they had qualified already. I think we deserved it.”
