Players and leaders of Bayern Munich were furious against the refereeing of the return match in Madrid on Tuesday evening, after their elimination (4-2 agg) in the quarter-final Champions League by Real.
“We got fucked, in the true sense of the word. This is the first time I have anger like this in me, “said boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge back to his hotel at night, quoted by the German sports agency SID, AFP.
Bayern, beaten 2-1 in Munich on the way, had delayed and reached the extension. But Cristiano Ronaldo was in offside position when he tied at 2-2. Moreover, the Bavarians consider that the exclusion of Arturo Vidal by the Hungarian referee Viktor Kassai, for two warnings, was not justified.
“A flight like this should not be possible in the Champions League,” said Vidal. “It was obvious and it makes you doubt football.”
“There was not even a fault” on the second warning, had previously ruled Rummenigge on Sky-Germany, “so let’s not talk about a second yellow card, it killed us.”
“I hope that in the future the video will help the referee, it is not possible to see mistakes like that in the quarter-finals of the Champions League,” had lamented the Italian coach of Bayern Carlo Ancelotti at the end of the game.
“I know that in football it can happen, but not a series of mistakes like that,” he insisted: “The 2nd and 3rd (from Madrid) are clearly offside. When Vidal receives his second warning, he touches the ball. ”
“A year of hard work. Thank you and bravoooo to the referee, “Franck Ribery posted on his Instagram page.
