Wenger backs English clubs to rule European football again next term

ARSENAL manager Arsene Wenger believes English clubs will be a force in the Champions League again next season and refuted suggestions it’s the turn of German clubs to rule Europe.

Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund stunned Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid this week with 4-0 and 4-1 victories respectively in their Champions League semi-final matches.

But, despite the prospect of a first ever all-German final at Wembley next month, Wenger believes it is too early to suggest that English teams are being left behind.

“You cannot go as far as that,” he said. “Bayern is an isolated phenomenon in Germany. They are a huge financial power. Next season you will see the English teams again.”
