Arsene Wenger has admitted that he does not understand why Mario Balotelli escaped punishment for the tackle on Alex Song while QPR captain Shaun Derry must serve a ban for a far less violent tackle against Ashley Young in the Man Utd v QPR clash.
He said: ‘I don’t still understand well. If you look at, for example, the case of Balotelli, okay you get an explanation and okay you have to accept it.
‘If you look at the case of Derry and think okay you can accept it.
‘But if you put the two together it looks absolutely unbelievable that one is suspended and the other isn’t.
‘But when the ref has seen something, no-one can get over the rule. I think we should have an exceptional committee of ethics to get over that.
‘The global situation does not make sense. For people who love football, it is difficult to understand why one is not punished at all and the other one is punished.
‘I’m not keen to get Balotelli suspended but for football fans it is difficult to understand.’
It is indeed a ridiculous situation and very unfair and to just sit back and say, that’s the way it is, is simply wrong, Wenger is right to admit he cannot understand it, not many can.
