Arsenal have “no chance” of reaching the knockout stages of the Champions League.
That’s the damning verdict of former Chelsea star Bolo Zenden, who has written off the Gunners’ hopes of progressing in Europe’s premier competition.
The north London giants have lost their opening two games to Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiakos and are rock bottom of Group F.
And with a double header against Bayern Munich, who boast a 100% record so far, to come next, Arsene Wenger’s side have a mountain to climb.
And Zenden insists they will fall short.
“Arsenal have no chance,” the Dutchman told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.”They are on no points after two games and, with the next two coming up being Bayern Munich, I don’t see it happening.
“After four games they might have no points. We’re not used to that it but it’s the likelihood after what we’ve seen. It’s not good for Arsenal and not good for English football.”
Chelsea also suffered a setback on Tuesday night as they lost to Porto, but former Stamford Bridge favourite Zenden is much more confident of their prospects.
“They will go through,” he concluded.
