Legendary Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has lashed out at Paris Saint Germain after their shambolic second-half display in the semifinal first leg of their Champions League clash.
The Parisians went ahead just 15 minutes into the fixture through a superb header from Marquinhos and held on to the lead all through the opening half.
However, they conceded two quick goals in the latter part of the game with Kevin de Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez both scoring within seven minutes.
The victory ensured the Premier League side is at advantage ahead of the second leg scheduled for the Etihad Stadium next week.
"I personally believe that the second goal is not acceptable for that level. It's not the first time we see players turning their back and City took advantage of that.
"But I must say in the second half PSG were protective and not progressive anymore. Is it because they were not physically capable? "After the 1-1, they collapsed completely. They become emotional and aggressive in a stupid way."
The 71-year-old claims their shaky domestic campaign dent the confidence of the Paris-based club in the game.
They became visibly irate as the second half turned against them with Neymar particularly getting embroiled in spats off the ball after a first-half where he shone for the French giants.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Manchester City came from one goal down to beat Paris Saint Germain 2-1 in a hotly-contested Champions League semifinal first-leg clash at the Parc des Princes.
It was the classic tale of two halves as Pep Guardiola’s men completely dominated the second half after making a slow start to the game.
The Citizens turned the game on its head in seven second-half minutes as goals from Kevin de Bruyne and a Riyad Mahrez put the Citizens in an extremely comfortable position in the tie.
