Edu warns Arsenal over Porto

 Arsenal sporting director Edu has warned the Gunners that they will have problems if they don’t prepare well before facing Porto in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 clash.

Edu issued the warning after the Champions League round of 16 draw at UEFA’s headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, on Monday.

Speaking after the draw, Edu told Arsenal’s official website: “We are going to play against a club that is very used to playing in the competition because they play in it every single year and they have a lot of players as well with big experience.

“We have to understand how we are going to play and respect them as much as we can. We will play our game and see if we can go through this stage. We can see how they are playing, how organised they are, and the players that they have.

“Porto is a club that you have to be really prepared to play against or we’ll have problems, so what we have to concentrate on is maintaining our levels and the way we are playing.”
