The Gunners boss is expecting a tough test as his
side prepare for their opening group game against
Dinamo Zagreb on Wednesday.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says that he is
desperate to win the Champions League before he
leaves the club.

The veteran coach has led the Gunners into
Europe's biggest club competition every season he
has been in charge, but the north London outfit
have only reached the final on one occasion.
And the former Monaco boss is keen to make
history and bring European silverware to the
Emirates Stadium.
"My drive to win the Champions League is
immense," he told reporters at a press conference
before the Gunners’ first group game against
Dinamo Zagreb.

"It's never been done at Arsenal. We have to put
hard work in."
Wenger’s side will start their 18th consecutive
Champions League campaign in Zagreb on
Wednesday and are strong favourites to beat the
Croatian champions.

Arsenal were dealt a huge blow earlier on Tuesday
with the news that Jack Wilshere will undergo
surgery on his left leg, while Aaron Ramsey and
Hector Bellerin have joined the injury list for the
north Londoners.

Wenger believes his squad is big enough to cope
with the injuries but is predicting a difficult test
against Dinamo.

“We have to play at our best to beat them,” Wenger
added. “They have not lost a game for 11 months.
“Dinamo Zagreb dominate in Croatian football but
we want to focus on our performance.

“I know I have a squad of experienced players.
Every decision I make is difficult, so it’s easier to
rotate than it was before.”
