Real Madrid v Bayern Munich: The referee killed it

391 0

Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti said referee Viktor Kassai “wasn’t up to the task” of a Champions League quarter-final and called for video technology “as soon as possible”.

Bayern midfielder Arturo Vidal was sent off for two bookable offences, while Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo scored in extra time from an offside position as the Spanish holders won 6-3 on aggregate on Tuesday.

“We had thought of everything going into this game – except the referee,” Ancelotti said.

“You can’t decide a semi-final spot like this. It shouldn’t happen at this level.”

Ancelotti said Real manager Zinedine Zidane agreed with his assessment of Hungarian referee Kassai’s “negative” performance at the Bernabeu.

“The referee probably wasn’t up to the task,” said the Italian, a former Real boss.

“I don’t think Real Madrid have any influence on referees. The officials simply got it wrong. I had never been in favour of video technology, but I must admit it’s necessary now.”
