The two teams meet in Germany on Wednesday night, when Arsenal need to produce what would be a remarkable comeback from a 3-1 defeat in the first leg of their last 16 tie.

But Bayern captain Lahm does not think Arsene Wenger's side are a force to be reckoned with anymore.

"I'd say they are one of the better teams in Europe but right at the top level? I don't think so," said Lahm.

Bayern will join Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund in the quarter-finals if they knock out Arsenal while there could be no English club in the last eight for the first time since 1996.

"It is a surprise to have no English teams in the quarter-finals," said Lahm.

"They have a strong league and have gone far in the past but a lot of teams have caught up. We are here, Dortmund are here."

England call-up for Clyne

T

he 'where does it end' argument is an absurd one and completely misses the point of the Rooney Rule, which applies to all minorities. It doesn't force any team to appoint anyone, it merely requires them to interview at least one minority candidate.
