Arsene Wenger faced the media after touching down China. And among the questions that was asked by the Media, one stood out – with the boss refusing to admit our absence from the Champions League being an edge for the Gunners winning the Premier League
On whether being out of the Champions League improves our chances in the Premier League Wenger said:
“No, not really. We have a group of player who are top quality. After that I believe that if you look at the last few years, you have Chelsea who have not played in Europe and Leicester who have not played [and they both won the title] so we have to focus on the Premier League and prepare well.”
“When we played in the Champions League, everyone said, ‘is that all you do?’ and when you do not do it, suddenly it becomes a major problem. At the end of the season, only one team will win the Champions League and all the others will be out. “
“So we have to focus on the competitions that we play in and prepare seriously for that, and not feel sorry for that we do not play.”
