Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that he is desperate to win the Champions League with the club, according to reports from the Daily Star.
Wenger has been in charge of the Gunners for 19 years, but he has yet to lift the European Cup during his tenure.
The closest the Frenchman got was in 2005, in which the Gunners were 1-0 up against Barcelona in the final only for Samuel Eto’o and Juliano Belletti scoring late goals to steal away the glory.
And since then, Arsenal never got back to their peak and failed to win the not only Europe’s biggest club prize, but also the Premier League.
However, the former Monaco manager is extremely determined this time around, marking the loss to his former club as the game that he regrets the most last season.
“If we missed one game last year, then it was our home game with Monaco,” Wenger said.
“We were not patient enough and we wanted to make the difference in the first game.
“We know we have some way to put that right, that is a regret of the season last year. We know as well that we can show that we have learnt from that.
“This drive [to win the competition] is immense. It has never been done at Arsenal and we were very, very, very, close.
“On the other hand, I have been long enough in the job to know you have to be realistic and know that you have to put hard work in.”
The Gunners travel to face Dynamo Zagreb in their first Champions League game on Wednesday before their big league clash against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this Saturday.
