‘I’ve never seen a team play so bad… it’s as if they don’t take the coach seriously anymore’ – Oliver Kahn

Former Bayern Munich goalkeeper Oliver Kahn is the latest to weigh in on Arsenal’s awful performance in their 5-1 defeat against Champions League on Wednesday.

The Gunners have exited at the last 16 stage for six consecutive years and it is almost a certainty that it will soon become seven after they were pulverised in the first leg at the Allianz Arena.

Arsene Wenger’s men went into the break on level terms after Alexis Sanchez converted his penalty on the rebound to cancel out Thomas Muller’s opener.

However three goals in 10  second-half minutes put paid to Arsenal’s hopes of progressing, before Muller completed the rout with two minutes remaining.

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright led the wave of post-match criticism, describing the Gunners as a ‘f****** shambles’.

Now Kahn has added his voice to the critics, admitting that he was stunned by what he saw against his former side.

‘I’ve never seen a team play so bad,’ said the former goalkeeper, who made 632 appearances for the German giants.

‘Bayern played a team so catastrophically bad without the ball.

‘The players were so passive, especially Ozil. It’s as if they don’t take the coach seriously anymore.’
