By the 90th minute, one of the biggest wonders of football history was on – but then came referee Michael Oliver and Real superstar Cristiano Ronaldo and destroyed the Juve-dream and Buffon career yet …
Giant Rage by Goalkeeper Legend Gianluigi Buffon (40)!
After the quarter-finals of Italy’s champions by a penalty in injury time, the keeper raved: “This referee has no heart. Instead, he has a trashcan. ”
Juve had sensationally shot the 3-0 loss from the first leg, leading 3-0 in the Royal League. As everyone was preparing for an extra time, referee Michael Oliver scored a contingent penalty in the third minute of injury time after Medhi Benatia’s entry into the match against Lucas Vazquez. Buffon protested so loudly that he saw the red card from Oliver. Ronaldo converted stoppage time in the seventh minute, shooting Real ahead and Juve out.
With 40-year-old Buffon likely to finish his summer career, it could have been an inglorious premier-class finish. In addition, it would then remain that the world champion of 2006 has never won the Champions League .
“If you have no character and no guts, then you should watch the game in the stands and drink a sprite with your wife,” said Buffon at the Italian TV channel Mediaset Premium in the direction of the referee.
“Only the referee has seen a foul. You have to have instinct and an understanding of important moments. If you do not have that, you do not deserve to be on the court, “Buffon said to the TV station beIN Sports:” You can not whistle that. ”
Similarly expressed the former Bayern professional Benatia. “You can never whistle a penalty in the 93rd minute. Everyone knows that this game should go into overtime, “said the defender, who put the suspicion of a privilege of Reals in the room:” Last year, they have made two or three goals against Bayern Munich , if I’m not mistaken. It is always the same. Real is such a great team – they need no extra help. “The Munich had failed in the last season in the quarterfinals at Real, lost the second leg in Madrid with 2: 4 after extra time. Two Ronaldo hits were preceded by off-the-wall positions.
Ronaldo rejected the allegations. “I also do not understand why they are so upset,” said the Portuguese European champion and team-mate of World Champion Toni Kroos on Sky: “For me it was a clear penalty.”
Also the french coach Zinedine Zidane claims that Buffon “did not deserve such an exit”
