Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has branded the Uefa’s five-official system “useless,” after his side was denied a penalty in defeat by Braga on Tuesday.
With the score at 0-0, Arsenal forward Carlos Vela was booked for diving, after appearing to be fouled in the box.
Wenger, who believes the decision was a “turning point” in his side’s 2-0 loss, said: “We have another proof that it is absolutely useless, this system.”
The Frenchman claimed several fouls on Emmanuel Eboue went unpunished.
Wenger was dismayed by the inability of the five officials to award a spot-kick, after Alberto Rodriguez slid in on Vela with 13 minutes left.
