On March 17 of the current year, As.Monaco knocked Arsenal out of the Champions League thanks to away goals and Arsene Wenger later went on expressing his dissatisfaction towards that rule as the French manager believes stated that it should be eliminated from the Champions League and the Europa League.
Arsene Wenger has once again voiced his opinion concerning something in the world of football and this time it’s involving referees.
A few weeks ago, Zlatan Ibrahimovic received a red card after he tackled Chelsea’s Oscar during a Champions League match but after seeing replays of the tackle, the red card did appear to be way too harsh as the Swedish player did not deserve to be removed from the match due to the tackle.
When the match was over, Ibrahimovic stated that he felt he was around 11 babies in the pitch as the Chelsea players surrounded the referee and the Swedish attacker. The players of the squad of Jose Mourinho tried to put pressure and complain to the referee who still had not made his decision on giving away the red card.
Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger believes that this type of things should not occur in the world of football and that referees should be given more respect.
“We want everybody to be respected and the referees are part of everybody. You want players to be ready to fight for each other. But how far has that to go in the behavior? You have to draw a line somewhere; you cannot go after every decision of the referee.’’ Arsene Wenger said.
