Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has warned UEFA the integrity of the Champions League will be at risk if they adopt Michel Platini´s proposal to include cup winners and an increased number of teams from lower-ranked nations.

This season´s group stages have already seen Arsenal beat Slavia Prague 7-0 and Liverpool thrash the Turkish champions Besiktas 8-0, and Wenger fears Platini´s proposals would undermine the competition further.

"You have to be careful not to change the Champions League too much by bringing in even more weaker teams, because you could find yourself with games five and six with no meaning. That would be very dangerous for the quality of the competition," said Wenger.
