Besiktas manager Slaven Bilic has warned Arsenal that the Turkish outfit will be coming to London next week to spoil the Gunners’ dream of playing in the Champions League group stage.

Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey was sent off in a feisty 0-0 draw against Besiktas last night in the first leg of their Champions League playoff tie at the Ataturk Stadium.

However, Bilic is just not satisfied with a fighting performance against Arsenal and said that Besiktas are coming for more in London next week.

"We are going to London not to go shopping in Harrods", Croatian was quoted as saying by the BBC.

The former Croatian international insisted that the Turkish outfit will be going for a win at the Emirates Stadium.  


"We're going to try to fulfil what some would say is our dream. I would say our task, our plan. We are big time alive, though.

“I am really optimistic.”

Bilic was sent off to the stands during the final moments of the match last night as he complained about the referee’s decisions during the game.

Arsenal will welcome the Turkish outfit in the second leg of their Champions League playoff tie next Wednesday to the Emirates stadium.
