Wenger: 'It was a massive wrong decision to cancel the goal'

Last updated : 08 February 2009 By Chris Parry

"It's two points dropped because we had the best chances and we had a regular goal that was cancelled by an illusionary foul seen only by the referee.

"I've seen it three times on television and I still don't see what is wrong, that is why at the end of the day it is frustrating."

"He has seen a push from Eboue but in fact it is Woodgate who has pushed him as well, and stumbled over Adebayor and falls down. You see it again and it is nothing, it is not acceptable in games like that. It is not serious."

"He made a big decision wrong. I cannot say the decision is right - I've seen it on television three times and it is still a goal."

"We dealt well with the situation even if it was a big handicap to play with 10 men. I thought the first yellow card was soft but I haven't seen the second - if he deserved to go then that's fair, but it was a massive wrong decision to cancel the goal we scored and that's not acceptable.

"I would like our opponents to have goals like that cancelled when they play at the Emirates."

"We dealt well with them. I don't believe Tottenham created many chances and we had more clear-cut chances in the game.

"We're on a good run and we will focus on our performances which is the most important thing. We'll see where we are in May.

"But I'm very angry today. I'm proud of my players but angry at the referee's decision to disallow the goal."
