The Frenchman thinks the concept holds too much weight.
Arsene Wenger has called on UEFA to scrap the away goal rule in Europe after Arsenal have been on the wrong end of the concept.
Last season the Gunners were knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage after a 1-3 home loss to Bayern Munich was followed by a 0-2 away victory.
Wenger believes that there is too much weight given to scoring an away goal and that it is not fair to persist with it.
“Last year we went out on away goals and after that I asked for Uefa to cancel the away goals,” the Frenchman was quoted by the Guardian.
“I think, for example, we lost 3-1 here and won 2-0 at Bayern. It is difficult to win 2-0 to Bayern without conceding a goal.
“The weight of the away goal is too heavy, too big and is not justifiable anymore.”
The north London side face Bayern again in the last-16 this term after drawing the Germans following a second place finish in their group behind Borussia Dortmund.
As Wenger learned last term, beating the Bundesliga champions is no easy task as the reigning European winners will be looking to defend their title.
It’s unlikely UEFA are to make any changes to the rules in the near future, but the 64-year-old coach will be hoping more high profile names support the manager’s cause.
The team have been in great form this year and currently top the Premier League after a great start, but face a difficult clash with Chelsea on Monday.
