Germany goalkeeper Jens Lehmann slammed the performance of Italian referee Roberto Rosetti during Sunday´s Euro 2008 final against Spain in Vienna, describing him as "biased".

Germany lost the match 1-0 and although Lehmann concedes Spain were worthy winners of the title, he was far from impressed by the role played by Rosetti.

"What was disappointing in my opinion was the performance of the referee, who didn´t really fancy us Germans, and this is the third time I was unlucky with referees in European cup finals," said the former Arsenal goalkeeper.
