Chelsea have lodged a complaint to UEFA after the 1st leg of their Champions League tie. At half time in the tunnel Rijkaard barcelonas manger, had exchanged words with referee Anders Frisk. As it turned out after half time Drogba was shown a second yellow subsequently he was sent off. Rijkaard denies anything sisnister happened. He says he said something infromal and very polite regarding the game, also that chelsea had exaggerated the situation.

I believe lodging a complaint was the right thing to do. It is against the rules for a manager at anytime to converse with a referee during a match. Even though there is most likely nothing going on, it is probably a good idea to investigate anyway....what are your thoughts

Strangely enough, Anders Frisk has now officially retired from refereeing. Obviously it has something to do with the Chelsea Barca first leg. I dont see the big deal though, most forgot and moved on. There have been claims of threats against Frisk from fans and chelsea staff. It seems unlikely to me but who knows...
