Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has said that he believes Arsenal are capable of winning this season’s Champions League.
Sixteen teams remain in the competition, with most bookies placing the Gunners as sixth favourites, way behind Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea and Atletico Madrid in the betting.
However, Redknapp, who is currently unemployed after resigning from his post as QPR boss, thinks Arsene Wenger’s men could be ‘dark horses’.
Ahead of Arsenal’s first-leg against AS Monaco, Redknapp wrote in The Sun: “The Gunners would be my dark horses for the Champions League because when you get a bit of luck like they have had, you start to think this could just be the year when your name is going to be scratched on the trophy.
“They are coming together nicely as an attacking force, and I don’t think their defence is as dodgy as some people like to make out.”
