Arsenal have been slated by former Bayern Munich goalkeeper Oliver Kahn, who feels their players are no longer taking manager Arsene Wenger seriously.

Kahn claims he has never seen a team play as badly as the Gunners during their 5-1 capitulation to Bayern at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday.

Unless they can fashion the most unlikely of second-leg comebacks, Arsenal are now set to crash out of the Champions League at the last-16 for a seventh straight year.

Germany international Mesut Ozil was singled out by Kahn as a particularly poor Arsenal performer and he suggested under-pressure Wenger – who is out of contract at the end of the season – is no longer being listened to.

“I have never seen a team play so bad,” Kahn said to ZDF.

“Bayern played a team so catastrophically bad without the ball.

“The players were so passive, especially Ozil. It is as if they don’t take the coach seriously anymore.”
