Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger complained about the referee’s decision on the 1-2 penalty for Chelsea the other night but Blues manager Antonio Conte reckons the Frenchman’s comments are not right.
“We got a farcical decision on the penalty,” Wenger said.
“We looked like we were mentally shot and could have lost the game – we had the resources to come back to 2-2. Maybe it was a fair result”.
This is what Conte about these Wenger’s comments in today’s press conference ahead of FA Cup game against Norwich:
“I don’t like to speak about other coaches, I think you have to have to respect them,” the Italian started.
“Maybe Wenger forgot we finished with 10 men in the FA Cup and Community Shield, maybe the referee decision was a little strange. We must accept the referee decisions. Wenger is an old coach, he’s got a lot of experience and he won a lot.
“If I want I can talk about referee decisions for one month. But I don’t want to do this because we should have respect for the referee’s decisions.”
