The France international fears lack of personnel will hinder their Champions League campaign.
Olivier Giroud admits he is concerned by the lack of depth in the Arsenal squad after in Marseille yesterday without eight injured players.
The Gunners open their Champions League campaign in the south of France hoping to get off to a winning start in Group F, and they were boosted by the news that Giroud had recovered from a knee injury to travel.
But with swelling numbers in the treatment room Arsene Wenger was forced to call up rookies Isaac Hayden and Chuba Akpom and Giroud is “scared” that a lack of personnel could impact on the club’s chances of reaching the knockout stage for the 15th consecutive season.
“We have a quality squad but I’m a bit scared about the numbers we have,” he told Sky Sports. “We will face problems because of the numbers in our squad.
“We’ll do everything we can to rival the big clubs, but saying that we want to win the Champions League is a bit presumptuous when you see that Bayern had to play in three finals before winning one.
“It will be a very tough group, but I think we have enough quality to go through.”
