Wenger thinks the Scot has been hard done by.
Manchester United sacked David Moyes as manager on Tuesday after just 10 months in charge and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has spoken out about the incident.
The Frenchman believes that Moyes was hard done by and that the manner in which the Red Devils dealt with the situation is not good for football as a whole.
Wenger on Moyes: “I’m sad that he wasn’t give him time. I wish him well and it is part of the modern game. It is a big threat for our game.”

The 50-year-old succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson last summer and was given a six-year contract, but a string of disappointing results eventually cost the Scot his job.
The final straw came when Everton beat the Premier League champions 2-0 last Sunday, although it’s thought not reaching the Champions League places was actually the critical factor in the decision.
Ferguson’s retirement saw Wenger become the longest serving manager in English football after nearly 18 years in north London – but that is something of an anomaly.
For example Liverpool’s Brendan Rodgers is now the fourth longest serving boss in the division having only taken charge at Anfield in 2012.
Whilst the hunt for Moyes’ successor continues at Old Trafford, Wenger’s future with the Gunners is far from certain either.
The 64-year-old’s current deal at the Emirates Stadium expires at the end of this term and as yet it’s undecided whether the stalwart will remain at the club or not.
