Carragher was not impressed with the Gunners’ dressing room photos after the Manchester City win.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has defended his side for their dressing room selfie antics after criticism from former Liverpool centre back Jamie Carragher following their win at Manchester City last weekend, reports the Mirror, with Wenger believing that the images are just a sign of happiness in the squad rather than any arrogance or over celebration.
The likes of Alexis Sanchez, Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud were amongst the players who took and featured in photographs taken both in the dressing room and on the journey home from last Sunday’s shock 2-0 victory over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, leading to consternation from Carragher.
Former England and Liverpool man Carragher felt that the images were a sign of overcelebration and looked ridiculous without a big trophy to be added to them, but Wenger rejected this view and feels that his players had a right to be happy with their three points:
“The team were questioned on their capability to win an away game,” he said. “They did it and they had a right to be happy.”
“But don’t worry, they know they haven’t won the league. We now have to show that we can be consistent at that level of focus. We have to show that solidarity in every single game.”
