Arsene Wenger says English football needs to take heed from the fact they have no clubs left in the UEFA Champions League.
After Arsenal bowed out against Bayern Munich on Wednesday, despite a 2-0 win in Germany - Wenger feels this is a warning to the English game.
The Gunners followed Manchester United out in the last 16, while Chelsea and Manchester City exited in the group stages.
Wenger, whose own search for silverware has now extended to eight seasons, believes the English struggle is no coincidence and believes lessons must be learned.
"It's a massive disappointment for English football," said the Frenchman.
"For a number of years we've not had that. I think it's a massive wake-up call for us.
"It means the rest of Europe has caught up on us. We have to take that into consideration when we think about the future of the Premier League."
