SPORT: “Every trophy is important” – Wenger
Mourinho believes scrapping the competition will favour English teams in Europe, while Guardiola questioned its significance.
Wenger, believes the pressure on the teams to win trophies, makes every competition important.
“With the pressure that every club is under now, you cannot sacrifice any competition,” the Frenchman said.
“You know that you could pay the price sometimes for it because if you go further in the League Cup, at some stage you play semi-finals where you are home and away in January, and you have the FA Cup, the Premiership.
“Sometimes you lose players in these competitions.”
