Wenger against Champions League expansion

Published Add your comment

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger feels expanding the Champions League to 64 teams would be detrimental to domestic football across Europe.

European football's governing body, UEFA, are considering scrapping the much-maligned Europa League and instead increasing the number of sides in their showpiece competition. The new format could be introduced for 2015 and might open up the Champions League to as many as seven English clubs and five Scottish teams at a qualifying stage.

But Wenger told Arsenal Player: "I am not convinced because the Champions League already has audience problems in the group stage, I think that would create more and lower the level."
