Anthony Constantinou talking about - Arsene Wenger launches staunch defence of Arsenal's Champions League record


  • Arsene Wenger defended Arsenal's Champions League record on Wednesday night as Barcelona's Three Amigo's heaped more European misery on the beleaguered Londoners.

  • The Gunners put up a valiant effort in the Nou Camp, but still lost 3-1 on the night; Barca's deadly trio Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar all on the scoresheet.

  • It means Arsenal have now crashed out of the Champions League in the last 16 for six consecutive seasons after this 5-1 aggregate loss.


  • There were some encouraging signs for the Gunners, however, as they created a number of chances against Luis Enrique's star-studded side.

  • Nevertheless, the Gunners are still counting the cost of another early European exit.

  • But when asked about his side's Champions League record, Wenger said: 'I'll give you the stats. We have to consider it game by game. You look at the positives and negatives and prepare for the next one.


  • 'We have gone out against top sides, who went on and won the Champions League after.

  • 'Only on one occasion we were completely guilty, against Monaco.

  • 'The others were against Bayern and Barcelona twice.'

  • When asked whether the result could help the Gunners in their attempts to haul back Premier League leaders Leicester, Wenger added: ‘'I think yes, I am pleased with the performance.

  • ‘The quality of our game was good. I felt from the bench at 1-1 they were wobbling a little bit and a bit insecure. We could not take the chance to score the second goal to put us in a strong position.’

  • Despite his positivity, Wenger couldn’t help but heap praise on Barca, added: 'We are disappointed with the result but we played a team with the best three strikers I’ve seen.

  • ‘Well done Barca, they are an exceptional side. You must admire art. They have two or three players with the ability to transform normal life into art.'


  • Meanwhile, Wenger revealed Mathieu at 1-1 they were wobbling a little bit and a bit insecure. We could not take the chance to score the second goal to put us in a strong position.’Flamini’s 44th minute substitution was down to a hamstring injury.

  • Flamini looked less than happy about being substituted and watched the second half of the game in the Nou Camp media lounge rather than the dug-out.

  • But Wenger play-down the flashpoint, saying: ‘I didn’t know where he was. I’m not sure he was allowed on the bench.

  • ‘He was injured. He had treatment after half-time. On a night of great football I wouldn’t say that was the most important thing about the game.’


  • As yet another English club failed to progress in the Champions League, Barca boss Enrique commented: ‘It’s true in the last few years English sides are not achieving the results we would foresee.

  • ‘I was surprised because I didn’t know Manchester City were in the quarter final. They have potential.

  • ‘England love football. It is something to analyse but it is true it seems difficult for them to keep up the level in European football.’
