Henry mad at the referee

Share |

It was not a happy game for him, so Thierry Henry blasted the referee after his disallowed goal in Arsenal's 1-0 Champions League defeat at CSKA Moscow.

Arsenal thought they had snatched a late equaliser when Henry controlled a deep cross from the right at the far post with his upper chest, and stroked the ball into the net.

But the Spanish referee Manuel Enrique Mejuto Gonzalez ruled the French player had used his arm, ruled out the goal and booked the Arsenal skipper.

Indeed, Henry labelled the decision to deny him a goal "a disgrace", revealing: "The goalkeeper looked at me and had a little giggle about it."

He added of the decision: "I believe that's a disgrace. When I ask the referee what did he see, he can't tell me."

The decision to brandish a yellow card at the Frenchman added to the frustration.

"That means I did it on purpose. I tried to talk to him at the end of the game. He was happy to talk about other stuff with the boss, but not that," said the Frenchman.

It's important to mention that Henry admitted Arsenal had not been at their best. "That's a clear goal for me. I'm sorry, but once again I don't know what to say about it. To give me a yellow card straightaway ... please, we've got the replay" he concluded.
