I don't think Wenger will say that bcos the Arsene I know always looks forward to perform at the highest level and he knows it this season wldnt feel right for him not competing at the Champions league.

He actually did say it

And as he prepares to face Europa League rivals BATE Borisov in Belarus on Thursday, he claimed the competition was losing some of its pulling power.

Wenger, 67, said: “I think that in the group stage, there are not many interesting games. You watch only one or two games.

“It’s a routine now, the Champions League, in the group stage. Look at the audiences. It has lost some attraction power.”

Last month Wenger insisted the Premier League had “taken over from the Champions League, interest-wise”.

But the Frenchman admitted he was missing the chance to test himself against Europe's elite.

Asked if he would like to be involved, he added: “Honestly, yes. But I must say, I have had nearly 200 games in the Champions League, so I can feel privileged.”

Oh I believe u now. Well I dnt believe in what he said cos the group fixtures are interesting to watch and I look forward to them. Maybe Wenger view is subject to the attendance on the stands which may be due to fans not willing to travel in mass or they are not sure of their security admits terrorist attacks.
Honestly he's down trodden about not able to participate in the elite competition hence is comments. I hope this serves an eye opener for him and his team on the importance of getting good results in the premier league bcos a club like Arsenal who has made it to d final in the champions league shldnt be relegated to feature Europa in the europa league.
