Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola says his side must buck up their ideas if they are to win trophies this season, branding the 5-1 win over Arsenal in midweek “a disaster”.
What may have seemed like another show of Bayern’s superiority in recent years was not to the Catalan’s liking, and he has warned that he expects improvements if they are to realise their season’s ambitions.
“We needed to play the ball around more against Arsenal,” he said. “We’ve got to improve that.
“It was a disaster in the second half, which is why we’re not yet ready to win the Champions League.”
Bayern Munich were 3-0 up at half-time after having 15 shots to Arsenal’s one, but went on to score only two more goals. Disastrous.
