Bayern hero questions Arsenal’s performance after 5-1 result
One of Bayern Munich’s club legends has criticised Arsenal’s performance after watching Wednesday’s 5-1 thumping in the Champions League.
The Gunners were expected to face a tough task in trying to secure a decent result at the Alliaz Arena in the first leg of the round of 16 tie.
And the outcome of the affair proved many predictions right as Arsene Wenger’s men failed to deal with the threat of the German champions, losing 5-1.
Even so, Arsenal appeared to be putting up a fight as Alexis Sanchez scored an equalizer after Arjen Robben’s opening goal.
But according to former Bayern goalkeeper Oliver Kahn, the away side’s shambolic collapse in the second-half was one of the worst he has ever witnessed.
“I’ve never seen a team play so bad,” Kahn told ZDF television.
“Bayern played a team so catastrophically bad without the ball,”
“The players were so passive, especially Ozil. It’s as if they don’t take the coach seriously anymore.
“Of course Arsenal have their qualities, especially on the counter-attack, and they have good players like Ozil, but I haven’t seen him. Maybe you saw him?”
“It’s sad to see what Ozil is calling a performance, how passive he plays, a player of his genius and qualities – it’s a shame.”
