Cape Town - Former Manchester United defender turned Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has blasted the performance of Arsenal in a 3-0 loss to Manchester City as an absolute disgrace.
Neville who was on co-commentary duty for the game at Wembley Stadium blasted the performance of some Arsenal players shortly after conceding a third goal.
"I mentioned the walking of the Arsenal players, then the retreating runs of [Aaron] Ramsey and [Granit] Xhaka... jogging, ambling back, absolute disgrace they are," Neville said. "They're an absolute disgrace, they're walking on a football pitch at Wembley...giving up, spineless.
Neville then saw a picture of a young Arsenal fan in tears in the stands and drove home his point of how disgraceful he thought Arsenal's players were.
"And look at that! That's what you cause, that's all a fan wants to see, is a player running as fast as they can and as hard as they can and they're walking around on a football pitch."
"I don’t even like the football anymore. The last bastion has gone. Liverpool play better football, Tottenham play better football, there’s 3 or 4 teams now that play better football....This is a dark, dark day."
Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and David Silva were all on the score-sheet as City lifted the trophy for the fifth time - only Liverpool have won it more.
It was an impressive statement of intent from Guardiola's men after a shock FA Cup defeat to lowly Wigan last week ended their bid for an unprecedented quadruple.
