Arsene Wenger pre Besiktas: We are in front of two big games [videos]

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger seemed in serious mood ahead of the Champions League play-off against Besiktas this evening.

After all, last season’s fourth place finish would mean nothing if Arsenal were to come a cropper to Turkish opposition over two legs.

In the pre-match press conference, Wenger said that beating Besiktas would be “a very difficult task”.

On the video below, Wenger explains why Yaya Sanogo did not make it to Turkey. Due to a “little” hamstring problem.
