Thomas Muller has joined his manager to take a swipe at Arsenal after Serge Gnabry’s heroics in London last night.
Gnabry scored twice to help Bayern Munich record a 3-0 win over Chelsea in their Champions League round of 16 match at Stamford Bridge.
The win puts the Germans one foot into the next round and they will probably feel the second leg at home is nothing more than a formality.
Bayern’s manager has claimed that he knew that Gnabry was a great player when he turned out for Arsenal and Muller has added his voice.
The former Germany international was asked how it felt that Gnabry had scored six times on his last two visits to London and Muller couldn’t help but wonder what Arsenal would be thinking about that.
Muller was asked: ‘Serge Gnabry has scored in his last six games in London. That’s crazy, right?’
He replied as quoted in the Metro: ‘Yeah, Arsenal are perhaps asking themselves that! ‘I’m happy he is scoring so much in London now and not five years ago, because if that were the case he probably wouldn’t be with us now.’
Gnabry struggled to nail down a starting shirt at Arsenal and when he flopped on-loan at West Brom, it became obvious that he may never be a success in English football and it was for the good of both parties that he return to his native Germany.
Bayern are quite rightfully over the moon at what they have achieved against English clubs this season but there is still a long way to go in this seasons Champions League and they may not be so full of themselves later on in the competition.
As for Gnabry, it is good to see he is doing well for the German champions, it is just a shame he could not do it when he was with Arsenal.
