Dusan Tadic was furious after Ajax’s 4-4 draw at Chelsea on Tuesday evening. Ajax were comfortable until two Ajax players saw red at the same time.

Ajax were leading 4-2 but Daley Blind and Joel Veltman were then shown red cards at the same time, with the latter also conceding a penalty. Chelsea then claimed a 4-4 draw against the nine-men.

After the match, a clearly furious Dusan Tadic took aim at referee Gianluca Rocchi. He told Veronica, “We must be furious about this. This is not possible.

“It is impossible for anyone to destroy our match in this way. We had everything under control. I just don’t understand that he gives red twice in one action. I don’t understand ….Whether I have ever experienced this? No never. I still have to check it, but I don’t even agree: To give red twice in the same action.”

Tadic believes Ajax would have won if not for the referee, “After those two red cards, it became a completely different game. We can be proud of ourselves. It was just not possible to play football with nine men. We had everything in our hands, were much better … We should have won tonight.”
