Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has stated that his side’s 3-0 win against Olympiacos ranks as one of his best ever results in the UEFA Champions League.
A hat-trick from Olivier Giroud secured Arsenal’s passage into the round of 16 alongside Bayern Munich.
In his post-match press conference, Wenger said the win against Olympiakos will impact positively in the team.
“We had a perfect performance on the mental side and tactical side too. It was a complete team performance,” he said.
“We needed great character tonight and these kinds of performances will only make the team stronger.
“It’s a fantastic achievement for us because we have lost players. Not many people gave us a chance but we are a real team.
“It is certainly one of my best European results. We had to produce a perfect performance to win and we did just that.
“This will certainly strengthen the belief of the squad. It’s a special night for us and will create a positive memory.”
Wenger also reserved special praise for the duo of Giroud and Joel Campbell.
“Olivier Giroud was down to take the penalties tonight. He took it well because he worked on it in training.”
“It was a perfect performance. I’ve always defended his character and he has shown it again today.
“He’s a very good player (Joel Campbell) who fights for the team. The loans made him tough and he’s only getting better.”
