Wenger: Gabriel Decision Repairs Part Of The Damage

share on:

Wenger is not appeased people. The red card Gabriel was handed against Chelsea was reversed, but the manager is only taking little consolation.

Arsenal were not beaten by the loss at Stamford Bridge, as they saw off Tottenham 2-1 in the League Cup.

Wenger has revealed he is still angry with the outcome of the match, with Gabriel still having one other case with the FA.

“It just shows that they decided after the game what should have happened during the game,” Wenger said.

“They repair five per cent of the damage which has been done to us – instead of us playing 11 against 10, we played 10 against 11.

“I have watched the game again. There are some things that were really surprising in this game, some incidents were really handled very lightly and not seriously. It is better I don’t talk too much because I am still angry about it.

“One or two situations in the game are very difficult to understand when you watch it again but I am in a job where I sometimes have to swallow things that are not right and maybe our opponents do sometimes as well.

“I said to you after the game that Gabriel should not have responded at all and I maintain that and I told him that, but when I saw it again, he did not do a lot, honestly.”

On the second charge still facing Gabriel, Wenger added: “You want them just to have hopefully a fair judgement.

“The FA will judge that situation and it is right. They cannot consider the whole context of the game. You want them to judge, they will decide and we will accept the decision, that is no problem.”
