Fearless Bayern Munich focused on Arsenal, says Lahm
PHILIPP Lahm says his Bayern Munich side is ‘focused, not wounded’ ahead of their Champions League clash at home to Arsenal tomorrow.
Bayern suffered their only defeat of the season at the Emirates Stadium a fortnight ago when they lost 2-0 to the Gunners in London.
Arsenal’s Germany defender Per Mertesacker has said he expects Bayern to be “wounded” and will “want to prove that they are better than us” at the Allianz Arena, but Lahm rejected the notion.
“Why should we be wounded? We’re focused, but we have no reason to be wounded,” said Bayern’s captain with the Germans top of Group F.
“We are top of the Bundesliga and our Champions League group, you can’t get much better than that.
