The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said the performance of referee Milorad Mazic was "very bad" during last night's first leg match of their Champions League qualifying tie. The Gunners drew 0-0 away to the Turkish side Besiktas but had midfielder Aaron Ramsey sent off for two yellow cards.
Neither the first nor the second yellow card was deserved for Aaron Ramsey. In the second half the performance of the referee was very bad. Ramsey's second yellow card, I cannot see where that comes from, it was a huge decision.
The second leg is at the Emirates Stadium in a week's time.
