Wenger disappointed to see Arsenal finish as Champions League runners-up

Arsene Wenger has admitted he is disappointed that his Arsenal side could not finish top of their Champions League group after the Gunners lost 2-1 to Olympiakos, condemning them to second place and, potentially, a more difficult second round tie, the BBC has reported.

The group’s other game saw Schalke and Montpellier draw 1-1, a result that meant Arsenal would win the group with a victory in Greece, but Wenger watched on as his team gave up a one-goal lead to fall to defeat. The loss means Arsenal have won only four of their last 13 games, and have fallen to 10th place in the Premier League, 15 points behind table-topping Manchester United.


Tomas Rosicky scored to put Arsenal in front against Olympiakos but goals from Giannis Maniatis and Kostas Mitroglu ensured the points remained in Athens. Arsenal however were annoyed with the decision to award the corner that led to the equaliser, insisting that the header from Paulo Machado went behind off the post rather than the hand of Wojciech Szczesny.


Post-match, Wenger said: “We have to wait for the draw but we wanted to be first. We can get a bad draw or less strong team, but you normally get strong teams through anyway now.
