The Gunners’ manager did not take responsibility for the team’s largest two-legged defeat in Champions League history as they got destroyed 10-2 by Bayern Munich in the matches in the last 16. Arsenal crashed out and burned at the first knock-out stage for the seventh season in a row after a second 5-1 game versus Munich. There is no doubt that this piles the pressure on the Frenchman, who has not committed to staying with the club after the campaign ends.
Theo Walcott managed to give the hosts a small amount of hope and even helped them restore some of their pride during yet another optimistic 45 minutes with an incredible opening goal. However, after the break, Munich showed their class as they scored five times to utterly humiliate the Premier League team.
The result was the same as the scoreline from 3 weeks ago when the Gunners suffered their worst European defeat. However, Wenger did not blame himself or any of the players. Instead, he preferred to direct his contempt towards the officials who according to him cost his team the tie.
This is the Gunners fifth loss in the last seven games. He stated that It leaves him frustrated and angry and also because Arsenal is currently in a difficult moment. According to the boss, it is completely scandalous and unexplainable. He concluded by saying that if we look at what happened, with an official behind the line giving a penalty and even a red card after the referee had already given a yellow.
