Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger believes the UEFA Champions League isn't what it used to be, saying 'It has lost some attraction power'.

The Gunners failed to qualify for Europe's premier club competition for the fist time in 19 years after finishing outside the top four last season.

The Frenchman believes the Group stage phase is no longer exciting and the competition does not have the same attraction as before.

"I think that, in the group stage, there are not many interesting games," Wenger was quoted as saying by ESPN FC.

"You choose only one or two games."

"Look at the audiences. It has lost some attraction power."

However, Wenger added, "I have had nearly 200 games in the Champions League, so I can feel privileged."

EPL teams are always getting an early shower in the champions league. That's part of the problem and it needs to change. Hopefuly Man U, Mancity and Chelsea can change that.
