It’s not over yet says Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene WengerArsenal boss Arsene Wenger has refused to give up on reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League, despite his side’s 3-1 home defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich.

Goals from Toni Kroos, Thomas Muller and Mario Mandzukic gave the Bundesliga side a vital lead heading into the second-leg of the tie.

Lukas Podolski’s effort left the Londoners some hope of advancing to the next round, but having conceded three away goals, Wenger admitted that it’s a big ask for his side to overcome the German giants at the Allianz Arena:

“Let us not hide the truth, it will be very difficult,” He told Sky Sports.

“But we will try to make the impossible, possible.”

The Frenchman has been under immense pressure of late, with some suggesting that the future of his reign in North London could rest on the club’s European campaign.

Arsenal have not lifted a major trophy since 2005, but have enjoyed regular top four finishes in the Premier League.

With a difficult second-leg clash with Bayern now on the horizon, Wenger believes that his side must throw caution to the wind to have any hope of ending their silverware drought:

“We have to go there and play completely like we play at home. We have to try to change the score. The third goal makes it very difficult but we have to try.”
