- Arsene Wenger thinks teams are only want the £100million-a-year from the Sky TV deal
- The Frenchman says teams no longer put efforts after they are safe from relegation
- Arsenal are currently battling for a top four place with Manchester City and Liverpool
Arsene Wenger has slammed Premier League teams and managers for letting their guard down when they are safe from relegation.
According to the Frenchman the league has lost its moral soul because of the money coming in.
The Arsenal boss argued that most clubs are only interested in banking the £100million-a-year from the Sky TV deal and that has made the league lose its morality.
Speaking to a press conference Wenger said the league has changed in the last ten years.
He said: “Mentally and morally the Premier League has changed a lot.
“Once some teams are safe they have a breather which didn’t happen ten years ago. Some teams turn up and others are on holiday, so it’s very difficult to plan.
“For instance, we had to fight very hard to win our last two games at Southampton and Stoke."
Wenger did not name culprits but said: “I don’t want to judge those teams who don’t turn up but for me it is absolutely vital to be professional and do your job properly until the last second of the season."
“Then you can look at yourself in the mirror and say ‘we did it properly.’
“What is inexcusable is to not give your best.”
Wenger's comments come after West Ham were defeated 4 - 0 by Liverpool who they are contending with for a Champions League place.
