Arsenal's Wenger doesn't like AC Milan's CL chances

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger feels that AC Milan have very little chance of winning this season's Champions League.

The Rossoneri got past Arsenal in the Round of 16 with a 4-3 aggregate win, despite losing 3-0 in the second leg, and the Frenchman suggests they do not have what it takes to win Europe's premier club competition this year.

"I know Milan very well: they play very well as far as collective work is concerned, but I do not think they are up to the task of winning the trophy," Wenger wrote in his column for Eurosport ahead of the Italian club's quarter-final first leg against Barcelona on Wednesday.

"They have some weak points, although they have a player with the quality of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Robinho can also be very dangerous in attack, but 'Ibra' can score a lot of goals on a good day.

"Milan know what to do to win at San Siro: I hope the condition of their pitch has improved because against us it was a disaster!

"Everyone looks at Milan with respect, but I think they have no chance of winning the Champions League."
