Arsene Wenger excited for difficult Champions League group


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that his side have a difficult Champions League group ahead of them, but he also believes it is a very exciting opportunity for the club.

Wenger looked on as he saw his side be drawn with French side Marseille, last year’s runners-up Borussia Dortmund and Rafael Benitez’s Napoli and the group has already been labelled as the group of death.

The Gunners had Marseille and Dortmund in their group a couple of years ago, which they managed to get through, but the teams are a lot different this time around.

Napoli played Arsenal in the summer during the Emirates Cup and the game on that ocassion finished 2-2 and Wenger knows how difficult the group will be.

“It’s difficult but exciting as well because it’s a group of a very good level,” the manager said. “We have played Dortmund two years ago. We did well against them and Napoli did well last year.

“Marseille we played two years ago as well. It’s a similar group to what we knew two years ago.

“Every game will be of huge importance because it could be down to a point or goal difference in the end.”
