Wenger: We’re Chasing Barca & Real Madrid

By on September 14, 2011

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits Real Madrid and Barcelona are the teams to beat.

Wenger believes the two Spanish giants are ahead of the rest and much of this is down to their financial power.

“Two teams are above the rest this season, Real Madrid and Barcelona.

“The rest have to catch up during the season. The competition inside our country has become harder. And outside, Barcelona and Real Madrid have much more financial power.

“For us, it’s a new start because we are a new squad.

“And what is at stake during the group stages for us is to show that we can go through.

Wenger admits Manchester City have the capability of winning the Champions League but insists it far too early to compare them to the majestic Barcelona.

“They have shown they can win it so, at the moment, it’s too early to compare us to them.

“And it’s a bit early to compare Manchester City with Barca.

“That does not take any credit away from Man City but Barca’s players have won the World Cup and the team has won two Champions Leagues in the last three seasons. So I think it’s too early for City.”
