That’s crazy, right?’Muller replied: ‘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.’ Advertisement Gnabry insists Bayern cannot afford to rest on their laurels but a three-goal buffer gives them ‘confidence’ ahead of the second leg.‘I certainly do [enjoy coming back to London]. I have a lot of friends here. A lot of them were in the stands tonight and I think they were giving me good power,’ the German told BT Sport.‘Three goals should give us a lot of confidence. We need to be prepared for the second leg and we can’t take it serious enough. It’s still open but I think we have a good advantage.‘I think we knew we had to be patient. We had the game under control in the first half I think we had a couple of chances with Lewa and Thomas and didn’t take them. But knowing we have to be patient and that we’d get our chances and in the end we took them.‘We saw last season with Liverpool beating Barcelona, we know we have to be careful and focus.’center_img Comment Advertisement After Bayern’s thumping victory, Arsene Wenger explained that Gnabry’s tendency to look for the ‘easy way’ was why he failed to make the grade at Arsenal.‘He has no real limitations it’s more how much does he want to suffer,’ the former Arsenal head coach said on beIN SPORTS.‘Because he has pace, power, technical ability, he’s very intelligent, sometimes he looks for the easy way in football. That’s what was his problem. He lacked a bit.‘I gave him to West Brom, it didn’t work out at all. In fairness I think we had an agreement with him but Bayern stole him away from Werder Bremen.AdvertisementAdvertisementMore: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man City‘He’s a good player. He has individual ability and collective ability. We had an agreement with him but because he didn’t play at West Brom I let him go with the U21s in the summer with the German national team and he did very well of course.‘We had prepared him for us to sign his new contract but then suddenly he wanted to go to Werder Bremen.‘But it was not Werder Bremen that bought him it was Munich that bought him. Because six months or less than one year later he moved from Bremen to Bayern but it was a done deal before.‘He was at the end of his contract and we thought that he would stay because he told he would stay.’Follow Metro Sport across our social channels, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.For more stories like this, check our sport page.MORE: Michael Ballack sympathises with Mason Mount after Chelsea’s defeat to Bayern Munich London still red.. #FCB pic.twitter.com/3108THrtzv— Serge Gnabry (@SergeGnabry) February 25, 2020last_img
