Arsenal London, Aug 26 (ANI):Arsene Wenger has called Arsenal’s upcoming European battle against Celtic a bigger game than the upcoming match with Manchester United.

Although, Arsenal hold a 2-0 aggregate lead in their Champions League play-off, the Frenchman has no plans to take it easy.

The Sun quoted Wenger as saying: “This game is a more important one than Saturday for the club, by far. We have to give absolutely everything be- cause tomorrow you cannot come back.

“Saturday, even if we drop points against Manchester United, we can always catch them up - you have 35 games still to go.

“If we lose the game against Celtic, we have zero. It is a massive game.”

Arsenal could bag around 25- million pounds even they only play the Champions League group stages.

But Boss said it was not just about money.

Wenger said: “It’s not the huge amount money that makes it such a huge fixture for us.

“It’s not the financial blow that matters, it’s that we want to be in the Champions League and this is a much bigger game for us than Saturday.”

After romping home in their first-leg victory in Glasgow, Arsenal are huge favourites to make it through.

However, Wenger believes there is not time to rest.

He insisted: “It is not job done, it is job to do. That is how I approach it.

“Celtic have no choice, they have to come out and have a go at us. We will be faithful to our tactical approach.” (ANI)
