The sent-off Juventus goalkeeper let fly at English referee Michael Oliver after Juventus dramatic Champions league exit at Real Madrid
The Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon criticised the English referee Michael Oliver, saying he has a” rubbish bin” where his heart should be and accusing him of denounce the Italians to Champions League elimination after dedicating Real Madrid a penalty in the third minute of added time that Cristiano Ronaldo scored to send them through to the semi-finals.
Oliver devoted the penalty for a contaminate on Lucas Vazquez in the closing stages of a dramatic quarter-final that Madrid won 4-3 on aggregate. He sent off Buffon for protesting, his last European game objective with him departing to applause from the home fans.
” To award such a doubtful, or super doubtful, penalty simply ahead of the final whistle and destroy the work of a squad who gave perfectly everything you have to have a rubbish bin instead of your heart ,” Buffon told.” A human being cannot choose the elimination of a team with such decision. When I don’t feel I’m good enough, I put myself in a corner. He should do the same. It’s a matter of sensibility. It means you don’t know where you are, which teams are playing, you don’t know shit .”
The goalkeeper added:” You need to be prepared for a game like this. You have to watch the first leg and see that a similar pollute was not penalise with a penalty for Juventus in Turin. And especially this is necessary personality to referee a game like this. If you don’t have personality, you better watch the game from the stands with your spouse and your children while feeing fries. What did I say to him while I was protesting? I could say everything in that moment because when you take such decision in a certain moment of the game it means you don’t know what sport is.
” We had done something which seemed impossible. It’s a pity it ended like this, unjustly. It was one one-tenth of a penalty. But life goes on .”
Max Allegri, the Juventus manager, defended Buffon, telling his reaction was ” understandable” and also acknowledged he had exchanged terms with the suspended Sergio Ramos as they crossed paths in the mouth of the tunnel where the Real defender had watched the second half.
” It was a moment of embarrassment ,” Allegri said.” Gigi had that reaction but that’s understandable. I don’t know if that has been his last game, there were three seconds left and the result would have been historic, super important, and he had a human reaction.
” The referee get out the red card and sent him off. As for the penalty, the referee said it was and he whistled it and there’s nothing else we can say but we’re left with a bitter taste .”
Allegri acknowledged he departed angry, hurt and persuaded Juventus had at least deserved to take a dramatic quarter-final into extra hour but said ” weeping is useless now “.
As he left he passed Ramos in the tunnel” he told me it was a clear penalty”, Allegri uncovered.” I told:’ Clear? Grey, at least .'”
