Only Real Madrid, with 16, can better the Gunners’ European run of progression from the opening group phase, which was secured last night with a 2-0 home win over Montpellier.
“If you look at how many teams have done that in Europe, you will find very few and that shows it is not easy,” said Wenger. “It’s a massive satisfaction because I am so many times with my back to the wall, accused of not spending fortunes,” he added.
Arsenal won with second-half goals from Jack Wilshere and Lukas Podolski and went through with Schalke, who top Group B by a point after a 1-0 win over Olympiakos pushed the Greeks out of contention.
