Pep Guardiola and his players on Sunday, October 19 arrived in London ahead of their UEFA Champions League clash against Arsenal.

The Bayern Munich manager revealed that the London traffic is the reason why his team is arriving so early for the UCL clash with Arsenal.

A journey from the Sabener Strasse to the hotel in London would take five to six hours because of all the traffic jams in London,” Guardiola was quoted as saying by Kicker when asked to explain the reasons for his early departure.
