Arsenal must show character against Bayern, says Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has demanded that his players bounce back from their FA Cup exit by performing well against Bayern Munich on Tuesday, says The Guardian.

The Gunners' hopes of securing their first piece of silverware since 2005 took a severe blow on Saturday when Blackburn Rovers won 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium in the FA Cup fifth round.


But under-fire Wenger says that the defeat, the club's first at home to lower league opposition since he took charge in 1996, should be forgotten about as Arsenal look forward to Champions League action in midweek.


Wenger said: "It's a good opportunity to show we have character and that we are men who can fight for each other in our next game. That's all we can do."


"It's about showing how strong and good we are. If we feel sorry for ourselves, we'd be completely wrong. We have a massive game on Tuesday night and we have to show some response after this. I'm very unhappy as well, don't worry, but the season is not over. For people looking in it may be but not for me."


Bayern head to north London for the Champions League round of 16 encounter in scintillating form. The German giants are 15 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga table and have won their last 11 matches in all competitions, conceding in just one of those matches.


The Gunners are still in contention for a Champions League qualification spot in the Premier League but are currently four points behind local rivals Tottenham Hotspur, who currently occupy fourth place.
