Wenger begs Arsenal fans, blames referee for Bayern defeat
Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has blamed the referee and match officials, after his team were drubbed 5-1 in the second leg of their last-16 Champions League.
The Bundesliga champions came into the second leg of the round-of-16 tie with a 5-1 win.
The Gunners needed four un-replied goals to pull off a miracle. They opened scoring through Theo Walcott’s emphatic finish.
However, the match turned quickly on its head, after captain Laurent Koscielny was sent off and a penalty was awarded to the visitors. Robert Lewandowski stepped up and equalized.
Arsenal collapsed once again and further goals from Arjen Robben, Douglas Costa and Arturo Vidal (twice) completed a miserable night for Wenger’s team.
“The second half of the game has been ruined by the referee,” Wenger told BT Sport.
“Lewandowski is offside, then a yellow card, on top of that he gives a red card. It’s not serious. It’s revolting.
“My team has produced a huge effort tonight. it’s difficult to understand what’s happened tonight.
“I’m sorry for people coming paying their money to see this sort of game.”
Arsenal crashed out of the Champions league with 2-10 goal aggregate against Bayern Munich.
