Mikel Arteta has provided insight into the mood within the Arsenal dressing room following their disappointing loss to Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals on Wednesday night.

Arsenal fell short at the Allianz Arena as they were defeated 1-0 by Bayern Munich. The likes of Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli were unable to capitalize on opportunities, and frustrations were further fueled by contentious officiating decisions, leaving Martin Odegaard visibly frustrated.


In a post-match interview with TNT Sports, Arteta described the atmosphere in the dressing room as “really gutted.” Despite possessing nearly half of the possession and creating a few opportunities, Arsenal failed to convert their chances into goals, ultimately contributing to their defeat and UEFA Champions League exit.

Arteta acknowledged the disappointment felt by the players and stressed the need to support them during this challenging time.

“At the moment, it’s a really gutted dressing room, ” Arteta said.

“I cannot find the right words to lead them, I wish I had. Through the tie there were very small margins. We gave them two goals. It’s the moment to stay next to the players and stick with them because they took us on this journey.”

Reflecting on missed opportunities, from Martinelli’s early chance to Saka’s late corner, Arteta said it was important for the team to learn from these experiences.

Despite the setback, he expressed confidence in the team’s potential and their determination to strive for European success in the future.

As Arsenal regroups and looks ahead to future campaigns, they will undoubtedly draw upon the lessons learned from this defeat.
