Wenger slams worst Euro performance


MILAN Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger branded his sides 4-0 defeat by AC Milan on Wednesday their worst ever performance in Europe.

We were never in the game, we were very poor offensively and defensively, and it as shocking to see how we were beaten everywhere, he told reporters after the Champions League round of 16 first leg football match at the San Siro.

It was our worst performance in Europe by far, there was not one moment we were really in the game.
The north London side went behind to a stunning early strike from Kevin-Prince Boateng before two goals from Robinho and a Zlatan Ibrahimovic penalty piled on the misery.

We had to chase the game, open up our game. It was always the same for us, balls over the top, its difficult to analyse. Its better not to talk too much and to analyse with a cool head, Wenger added.

We will focus on our next games and although the result is a disaster, the season is not finished.
He said he did not feel Arsenal had made big tactical mistakes, but acknowledged there was almost no hope of reversing the scoreline in next months second leg.

We did not have many other choices, we were weak in some departments, and I knew we could have some problems in some areas, but I did not feel we would not score a goal tonight, the Frenchman said.

Lets be realistic, we dont play in dream world, maybe there is a 2% or 5% chance statistically, realistically we are out of this competition.
