Five-star Bayern Munich thrash Arsenal as Real Madrid put three past Napoli
Feb 17 2017 by Kathy Alvarado
Wenger's past at the club goes back two decades and includes three EPL titles, but the last came in 2004. During a 2-1 win over Burnley on January 22, he pushed the fourth official and received a four-game sideline ban. On Feb. 4, they fell, 3-1, at Chelsea.
Separately, the BBC reported, without sources, on Thursday that his future would be determined at the end of the season, when his existing deal expires.
Neither the Arsenal board nor Wenger have ever been swayed by such opinion, but for the first time in his tenure I think there will be serious doubt on both sides about whether he should continue.
Muller piled more misery on the hapless Premier League side by coming off the bench to snatch a rare goal in what has been a poor individual season for the Germany global, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's mistake allowing Bayern to confirm a repeat of the embarrassing scoreline from last season's meeting at the same venue.
Would the likes of Rabiot and Andre Silva lead Arsenal to Premier League or Champions League glory?
The Italian denied Arsenal's last 16 hoodoo would affect the Londoners in this tie. Fans will turn and once again the noise about Wenger will build.
Well, Arsene Wenger decided to choose that option in real life tonight as an end was called to his press conference after just three questions following a 5-1 hammering at the hands of Bayern Munich.

"At this level, this stage of the competition, they are just not good enough". A move to Juventus or Bayern Munich would see him in a real hunt for league titles immediately.
"I've done that dream, I'm still happy", said Eastmond, who played 10 times in Wenger's first team. "And then we thought, 'No, we haven't done it for any of the other teams coming down'".
Arsenal headed into the interval in Munich on level terms, but now face an nearly impossible task of qualifying for the quarter-finals after Carlo Ancelotti's side ran out emphatic 5-1 winners.
Bayern put gloss on their performance as Thomas Muller, fresh onto the field as a substitute, applied a cool finish past Ospina.
Champions League victor in 2013, Bayern has reached at least the semifinals the past five years and has won its last 15 Champions League home games, a record streak. "I felt the third goal was a killer for our players and after that we had no response", Wenger said.
"We have an advantage to play the second game at home".
His post-match press conference lasted barely five minutes and was cut short after he answered just a few questions. Too hollow. the fans want a proper trophy.
