No doubt he will be given a touchline ban. Sucks that diabolical refereeing can't be criticised

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been charged with improper conduct by Uefa.
The action comes after comments the Arsenal boss made about Slovakian referee Damir Skomina following their Champions League exit on Tuesday.

He confronted Skomina after the final whistle and claimed the official gave AC Milan too many free-kicks as the Italians lost 3-0 but won 4-3 on aggregate to reach the quarter-finals.

Wenger has already served two touchline bans imposed by Uefa in the last year.

He said after the game: "I was not happy with the referee tonight because I felt he gave many free-kicks in the middle of the park.

"Every time they went down a free-kick was given for them, and they sensed that very quickly and they used it very well."

Wenger was banned from the touchline for one match just under a year ago for comments made after Arsenal were knocked out of last season's Champions League by Barcelona.

He was then suspended for an additional two games after being found guilty of contacting the Gunners bench while serving that previous suspension - and lost an appeal against the extra ban.

What a load of horse-shit! Has this charging of Wenger by UEFA now become an annual thing? The ref last night was attrocious throughout the game, the sooner UEFA realize many of their refs are shit and keep costing teams,especially in the knockout stages, the sooner everyone can move on with their lives...

Ridiculous. FIFA, UEFA, and the FA are all jokes. Is there a football governing body out there that don't have their head up their asses?

Wenger tells it as it is and is barred! He didn't even personally attack the obviously incapable official. Just said he got decisions wrong.
Mourinho can eye gouge his away around the technical area and not a thing is done. UEFA don't like le Boss and are looking for any old excuse to keep him from harassing the 17th official during their embarrassingly officiated games.

Meh no big deal. He prefers the view from the stands anyway.

It's not like he said anything - he said he was unsatisfied with the referee. He didn't say anything meaningful, UEFA are a bunch of idiots.

It's ridiculous he can't say he was not satisfied with the referee tonight. It was not hard for the average fan to see how poor he was let alone those involved with football, even the commentators commented he didn't have a great night etc How can the governing bodies expect referees to get better when not ONE word of criticism can be directed towards them.
