Wenger declares court case threat after what happened in Bayern game
Arsene Wenger insists UEFA may be the subject of legal action in the near future if controversial decisions continue in big games.
The Gunners were emphatically beaten 5-1 by Bayern Munich once again after a forgettable night at the Emirates stadium on Tuesday.
However, Wenger has maintained his stance that the wrongful dismissal of Laurent Koscielny in the second half affected the result.
According to the Arsenal boss, debatable referee decisions like the one which saw Luis Suarez earn a second penalty for Barcelona against PSG, could see European football’s governing body land in trouble in court.
“I’m believing that in the next five years if Uefa does not bring video in they could face legal action from television or from fans because they refuse to progress for the right decisions,” Wenger said.
“The fans and television companies pay a lot of money and they spoil the package because they don’t do the maximum to give a fair spectacle.
“If they don’t go further, that is what will happen because we live in a society that is legalist and what people pay is more and more, if Uefa and Fifa don’t take that step to go for more justice, they can’t offer what we saw for us against Bayern or the night after, it’s indefensible.”
