Coach Arsène Wenger of Arsenal had a bitter taste about the 1-1 in the first semi-final of the Europa League against Atlético Madrid.

Arsène Wenger looks on

“We had this competition at home to win,” said the Frenchman, now in his 22nd and final season at the club. “That had also been and should be. With 1-0 we had everything completely under control. Instead of continuing to walk, we give the end away. That we have ourselves to blame.”

More praise was on the other side Diego Simeone for his players. “They are heroes,” said the Argentine coach. “We have eighty minutes with a man less played and leave here with a tie. That is great and provides for us a lot of perspective for the upcoming match in Madrid.”

Sime Vrsaljko of Atlético was early in the duel sent off the field.
