Dimitar Berbatov insists that his Monaco team ‘wanted to win more than’ Arsenal after the French side recorded a 3-1 victory in the Champions League last-16 clash.
Emirates Stadium bear witness to one of the shock’s of the season so far as Arsene Wenger’s team succumbed to an embarrassing first leg capitulation.
Former Manchester United, Tottenham and Fulham striker Berbatov knows all about Arsenal from his days in the Premier League and he admitted afterwards that his team were more hungry for the win.
When asked how Monaco made Arsenal look average, Berbatov said: “Because we are good.”
“Nobody expected that probably but we are confident in our ability and honestly we deserved to win”, he told Sky Sports.
“We scored our chances and in the end it was a great win for us. But it is not over.
“We have another game in Monaco and Arsenal are a dangerous team. Today, we probably wanted to win more than them. We were fighting all over the pitch and winning our challenges.”
