Clichy blanked by Wenger before Manchester City's clash with Arsenal

The Gunners boss strolled straight past the disappointed French left-back, who left the Emirates Stadium before winning the Premier League title under Roberto Mancini

Manchester City defender Gael Clichy was left disappointed while waiting in the tunnel before the defending Premier League champions' clash against Arsenal after being snubbed by his former boss Arsene Wenger.

As revealed by City's behind-the-scenes 'Tunnel Cam' video, Wenger glanced at the left-back, who was waiting to enter the field of play to warm-up before the match, before strolling straight past him without exchanging pleasantries.

Clichy left Arsenal for around £7 million in 2011 having reportedly told Wenger that he wished to depart the Emirates Stadium.

The France international notes to his team-mates that it "would have been nice" to say hello to his compatriot before letting out a wry grin.

City and Arsenal played out a 1-1 draw, with Joleon Lescott opening the scoring from a corner before Laurent Koscielny equalised from a set-piece of the Gunners' own.
