Frank Ribery admits Bayern Munich were surprised by Arsenal’s poor performance in Tuesday’s Champions League clash at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners were beaten 3-1 by their German opposition, leaving their European dream in tatters ahead of the second leg in Munich.
“We didn’t think it would be so easy,” France international Ribery is quoted as saying in the Sun. “We know Arsenal are having some problems in the league, maybe they are lacking in confidence.
“But we feel good and we’re delighted to have got that result. We’re all working hard together, with the will to play well, to win, to defend together. It’s important to carry on like this.
“We will have to match that performance in the return leg. We’re in good shape to reach the quarter-finals but nothing is ever over in football.”
