After watching his side secure passage into the Champions League Knockout Stages for the sixth successive season, Arsène Wenger spoke to the awaiting media about the performance.

Unsurprisingly, the manager was happy with the victory describing it as the ‘first step’ for his side.

Wenger discussed:

  • leaving it late against FC Dynamo Kyiv
  • Nicklas Bendtner’s impact from the bench
  • the performance of new captain Cesc Fabregas
  • William Gallas’ role in the win
  • His thoughts on Aaron Ramsey, Carlos Vela and Jack Wilshere
  • Manuel Almunia’s crucial late save
