Arsene Wenger says managers must be “careful” when criticising their own players and “control what you say”.
Wenger’s Arsenal side face Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United on Sunday (kick-off 16:00 BST), battling to reach the Premier League’s top four places.
Mourinho has questioned the desire of defenders Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones to return from injury.
“You can do that in extreme situations but it has to be handled carefully,” said veteran Arsenal boss Wenger.
Mourinho questioned full-back Shaw’s commitment and focus to the club last month and then said the player used “his body with my brain” after the 1-1 draw against Everton two days later.
The former Chelsea manager was also unhappy with the “cautious” mentality of centre-backs Smalling and Jones for failing to play through pain during the Manchester derby.
Smalling has been struggling with a leg injury, while Jones suffered a toe problem in a training ground tackle made by his team-mate.
