Reports are out claiming that Arsenal legend Emmanuel Petit says they should give up on the Champions League this season.
Arsenal are currently bottom of their Champions League group – and Petit hopes they will stay there if they fail to make the top two and qualify for the last 16.
“What they don’t want is to finish third [in the group] and go in the Europa League,” said Petit. “There is so much travel in that competition and Thursday night football.
“If they go out of the Champions League, better to finish last in the group. Then they can concentrate on the Premier League – which I believe they can still go on and win. “
