Arsene Wenger has called on his players to stand up and be counted when Arsenal meet Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday, ESPN has reported.

Wenger added that if any of his players want to be added to the list of the game’s greats, they need to put in a decisive performance in fixtures such as this, the manager citing the likes of Zinidine Zidane, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as examples past and present.

“If you look at the biggest games in the world, Zidane scores, Ronaldo scores, Messi scores. The competition belongs to them. That's why they are big players,” Wenger said. “Against Bayern, I want Arsenal to show that we have such big players.

“But that recognition only comes with results and achievements. Once you win the Champions League, that's when people say you are a great player.”

Arsenal have never won the Champions League but did reach the final in 2006, when they were beaten by Barcelona. The Gunners took the lead through Sol Campbell but goalkeeper Jens Lehmann had already been dismissed by that point. Goals from Samuel Eto’o and Juliano Belletti gave victory to the Catalans.
