Cape Town - Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright described manager Arsene Wenger as a lost man after his side were bundled out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

The Gunners came into the second leg of their last-16 tie already trailing 5-1, and went on to concede another five at the Emirates Stadium to lose 10-2 on aggregate.

Wenger's men took the lead in the second leg via Theo Walcott, but Laurent Koscielny was sent off shortly after the break, which resulted in an equaliser in the form of a penalty conversion from Robert Lewandowski.

The hosts then fell apart, conceding a further four goals to slump to a humiliating defeat at home. 

Wright expressed his thoughts on the embattled Wenger after the game, speculating that his time may be coming to an end.

"He looks like a lost man... It just seems to be mounting up. You've got the fans, the protests. It's imploding," Wright said on BT Sport.

He added: "You can't go down to 10 men and not shore it up against a team like Bayern Munich.

"We've lost the tie down to 10 men, we maybe should have brought on a couple of defenders and kept it a little bit more respectable.

"It's a sad day because we've gone out again at this stage and we're going through a period in our history which is the worst that I can ever remember.

"It seems like something is coming to an end."
