'Furious' Wenger blasts soccer officials over CL defeat to Olympiakos

London, Wed, 05 Dec 2012 ANI

London, Dec. 5 (ANI): Gunners boss Arsene Wenger reportedly blasted officials after his team missed out on top spot in Group B following a heavy loss from Olympiakos.

The defeat has now left Wenger desperately praying to avoid Barcelona in the Champions League draw.

"We need a good Christmas present now. We'll simple as that. What is the referee doing behind the line? Nobody knows. They did not do their job in a serious way - all night we had some surprising decisions. They looked like they knew there was not too much at stake," The Sun quoted Wenger, as saying.

"If you do not question the role of the referee then you have to ask what is he doing. It is his job and it was so obvious that nobody had touched the ball," he added.

The Gunners missed out on top spot in Group B after a controversial equaliser from Giannis Maniatis and a brilliant Kostas Mitroglou winner.

"You wonder how he could not see that and what is worse, how could he see someone touch the ball when from 100 yards away you could see nobody touched it. It's too easy to say it cost us top spot, but it cost us a goal and changed the momentum of the game," a frustrated Wenger added. (ANI)
