The red card released by the referee from the quarter of an hour of play was not to the liking of Gian Piero Gasperini, who gave a huge rant after Real Madrid’s victory in Bergamo (0-1).
It is a decision that has probably not finished talking in Italy. The meeting betweenAtalanta Bergamo and the real Madrid had been going on for just over a quarter of an hour when the referee of the meeting, Mr. Stieler decided to issue a red card against Remo Freuler for a fault on Ferland mendy, judging that the Swiss acted as the last defender even though the French international was slightly off-center.
The meeting changed and if Atalanta resisted until the last minutes of the meeting, Real Madrid ended up winning 1-0 in Italy thanks to a goal from the same Ferland Mendy. Enough to provoke the fury of the Italians, Piero Gasperini letting his anger burst at the microphone of Sky Italia at the final whistle. “The match was ruined by the referee, he thus launched. I don’t know how it would have ended, but we were reduced to defending. “
And the Italian technician might want to stay measured, he did not mince his words. “It’s football suicide. I have already taken a big suspension, if I say more, UEFA will suspend me for two months. But this is football suicide. You cannot have referees who cannot distinguish a fault from a tackle. If they don’t understand that, let them go and do another job. I mean, you don’t have to be an engineer at NASA… ”, he added, adding: “ They are an essential part of the game, he continues, and they can help themselves to the video, they have everything at their disposal. But even with the images they make mistakes… And it’s the same in Serie A. ”
Ferland Mendy, the hero of Real!
