Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes that the Roma-Dynamo Kiev match should not have been abandonment following the Aders Frisk incident.
“The decision to suspend the match has caused a serious precedent. A riot around the stadium could have occurred as a result of it,” he told Friday’s Evening Standard.
Wenger noted that the 1985 Champions Cup final between Juventus and Liverpool was not abandoned, despite 39 fans being killed as a result of riots at the game.
“For me it is difficult to understand because you play a European Cup final with 37 dead people but you cancel a game for a cut on the referee’s head,” Wenger said.
UEFA are expected to deliver their verdict on the incident next Tuesday.
