Arsenal’s manager couldn’t really find his words after the battering Arsenal got against AC Milan last night in the Champions League knockout stage, but he admitted that the Gunners had an absolute horrible night and that they were powerless in front of Milan.
“It’s a night never to forget,” he said. “It was our worst night in Europe by far. We made mistake after mistake and were punished, and deservedly so.
“It would be unfair for me to blame the pitch. The pitch was a disaster, but our performance was at the level of the pitch. It was a shocking result and a shocking performance.
“We were never in the game. We were very poor offensively and defensively. It was shocking to see. It’s our worst performances in Europe by far.
“We let our ambitions down as a unit. We felt powerless to get into the game.”
The single question remaining now is what’s the Frenchman up to in the last part of the season? He can only fight for a cup, the league title is gone and the Champions League is gone too after the horrible performance Arsenal put on, so what’s he going to do in the rest of the season?
