Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti, head coach of Real Madrid, made a disturbing claim about refereeing errors against his side in Manchester City’s first leg of the Champions League semi-finals.
A positive 1/1 draw dominated Real Madrid’s match against City after Vinicius Junior managed to score a meringue goal and Kevin De Bruyne equalized.
Ancelotti opens fire on Real Madrid-Manchester City referee with disturbing statement
Ancelotti said in a press statement after the meeting: “City’s goal? The ball seemed to fall out. There was also a corner before the attack. The referee was not very attentive today. On top of that, he gave me a yellow card and I told him to shoot cards inside the field, not outside.
He continued: “Bernando Silva’s ball? The ball went out and I saw it, but I don’t understand why the referee did not return the VAR, the referee was not very attentive for most of the game, gave me a yellow card for no good reason.
And he continued by saying, “Can you claim the site of Al-Ittihad? Yes, we can win and qualify. We have a good feeling, we competed and fought very well today, we planned the game well. The result is not in our favor and not as expected, but it is a fair draw and the decision will be in the second leg as expected.
