Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger hit back to the Union of European Football Association (UEFA) that they were a 'dictatorship' following the charges filed against both the French manager and player Samir Nasri after Arsenal bowed out to Spanish front runners, Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League.
Wenger and Samir Nasri were charged by UEFA for their actions against referee Massimo Busacca after Barcelona defeated Arsenal 3-1, 4-3 in agrregate.
The main issue here was when Busacca sent off Arsenal striker, Robin van Persie for kicking the ball away after the official whistled for offside. In van Persie's defence, he claims that because of the atmosphere at the Nou Camp, one will have 'a hard time hearing the whistle', but the referee did not overrule his decision forcing the Gunners to end the game with 10 men.
According to Wenger, "the first leg was a fantastic advert for football and the second game has been destroyed. People now will only remember the sending off."
Perhaps Busacca should also reassess his refereeing skills as Goal.com listed every decision made by the referee and evaluated the calls whether it was correct or not.
