Wenger: "Bayern win doesn't make up for last season"

Thursday, July 20 2017 by 7MTV
  • Reaction from Arsene Wenger after Arsenal beat Bayern Munich 3-2 on penalties following a 1-1 draw in the International Champions Cup.

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Arsene Wenger, Arsenal Manager:

    (Will this win wipe out the bad memories against Bayern in the last season?)

    "No I don't think anyway these kind of games don't wipe out what happened last season, we'll always remember that. Especially we had a nightmare last season in the second half because if you take the two results in the first half we go through. And we had a nightmare in the second half. Of course it's different but it's still good to win against a team like Bayern because it can help a little bit to grow in confidence and to think we have to continue to prepare well. And the group mood it helps a little bit, we are now ten or eleven days away so it helps a little bit to think let's push on it's the last step in our two weeks preparation so on that front mentally it's good."

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Arsene Wenger, Arsenal Manager:

    (Is such a long trip good preparation for the new season?)

    "Unfortunately sometimes I give bad answers to good questions, but if you ask me is it ideal physically to prepare I say certainly not. Has it other advantages? Yes because we can meet fans all over the world so that is a very positive, the bonding in the team is more easier as well because we live together for two weeks, and so on that front it can be very positive. But the real answer will be given by the way we start in the championship."
