Arsenal’s crazy keeper, ‘Mad’ Jens Lehmann, was far from happy at seeing the referee from the away leg at Bolton take charge of the reverse fixture.

The German stopper felt the ref lent in the favour of the boys from the reebok after hearing the Yorkshireman being slightly over familiar with Kevin Nolan.

‘We were wondering that we had the same referee as in the away game. That is quite unusual because we were quite unhappy with him, and he turned up again,’

‘What surprised me was that at the end of the game, the referee came to Nolan and said ‘come on, five minutes’ and I have not heard this in the game before.

‘I went to him as I was complaining there was an elbow at a corner, and he said to Nolan ‘come on, five minutes’. I do not know if this is usual.’

Lehmann added: ‘Sometimes it is a little bit difficult to play when you have problems with decisions.’

Lehmann was lucky not to be carded himself after pushing a Bolton player to the floor for no apparent reason.

That’s why he’s ‘Mad’ I guess.
