Wenger Blasts Ref & Bottle Throw

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has blasted referee Milorad Mazic after his side's goalless draw at Besiktas in the Champions League play-off and confirmed a bottle was thrown at him after the game.

The Gunners didn’t have the best of nights in Turkey and will miss Aaron Ramsey in the return leg after he was sent off with two arguable yellow cards.

Wenger branded the sending off ‘unbelievable’ and said he reported the bottle incident to UEFA.

"As I left the pitch a bottle or ­something was thrown at me. I reported the incident to UEFA,” Wenger told ITV.

"Both yellow cards for Aaron Ramsey are unbelievable. When you see the fouls they have made today it's not serious. Just not serious."

Besiktas forward Demba Ba proved a constant threat for the home side as the former Chelsea striker went close on numerous occasions, while substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain saw a late effort tipped on to the post.

Wenger insists it was a difficult game but is hopeful his side can beat Besiktas in the return leg at home, while he had special praises for his latest signing Callum Chambers.

"It was a difficult game played at a frenetic pace from the first minute to the last. We could have won it but they had chances as well, in the first half alone,” he added.

“In the end we didn't lose and hopefully we will make it at home.

"I think he (Callum Chambers) was once again very good tonight and very convincing in his performance. He coped with the pressure, won the challenges and played on a pitch that was not easy. He did very well.”
