Walcott: The Team Is Hurting

Theo Walcott has said the squad at Arsenal is hurting after losing 5-1 to Bayern Munich, to crash out of the UCL 10-2 on aggregate.

Walcott opened the scoring in the first half, before Koscielny was sent off in the second half and Lewandowski converting from the spot.

What followed was bad for Arsenal, as Robben and Costa scored one a piece, before Vidal scored a late brace.

The England international said his team were hurting following their latest heavy defeat.
“We wanted to just show passion and commitment, that hasn’t been there in the recent weeks to be honest, and we did,” Walcott told Arsenal Player.

“We gave it our all, we went down to 10 men and it completely changed the whole pattern of the game.

“We should’ve been smart and just [opted for] damage limitation really. It’s just a big shame.
“People will be saying that we don’t care and stuff like this but obviously we do care. There’s loads of players who are very hurt, completely, in the dressing room.”
