Tony Adams expects Arsenal to fail in Europe

Tony Adams claims that Arsenal will not win the Champions League if Arsene Wenger continues with his philosophy towards football.

Tony Adams has insisted that Arsenal have become a "feeder club" and ruled out the possibility of his former side winning the Champions League this season.

The 45-year-old, who spent the entire of his professional career at Arsenal, believes that the sale of Robin van Persie and Arsene Wenger's footballing philosophy will prevent them from succeeding in Europe.

Adams told the Evening Standard: "It's the same scenario with Montpellier and Olivier Giroud — we've become a feeder club and it's like different levels of clubs all of a sudden.

"There is no way in a million years Arsene is going to change his philosophy but I don't think this team are good enough to win it.

"I expect them to score goals but they cannot win the Champions League with their current mentality. I hope they prove me wrong but against the better teams I think they will fall short again."

Arsenal started their campaign to be crowned Europe's elite club on Tuesday evening with a 2-1 victory over Montpellier.
