Buffon: "The referee has a rubbish bin where his heart should be"


Juventus were furious with the decision and their veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was sent off for barging into Oliver during prolonged protests.

Buffon blamed Oliver for what he felt were two injustices - the penalty and the sending-off - long after the match had ended.

I'm not saying it wasn't a penalty, I am saying it was a dubious situation.

He later told media the English official had a "bag of rubbish for a heart". On top of that, if you don't have the character to walk on a pitch like this in a stadium like this, you can sit in the stands with your wife, your kids, having your drink and eating crisps.

"A human being can not decide the elimination of a team with such decision".

Even now, the Italian keeper refuses to backtrack, telling Le lene: "I don't have to make up for anything, because I am a human being who puts passion, sentiment and anger into what I do".

'It wasn't a situation where you could say: "That is definitely a penalty".

The Old Lady midfielder Sami Khedira has explained referee Michael Oliver was not 100 percent sure when he pointed towards the spot kick after Real's Lucas Vasquez went down inside the six yard box following a contact from Medhi Benatia.

Gianluigi Buffon has refused to apologise for his comments on referee Michael Oliver.

"With the scores level in a gripping quarter-final heading for extra-time, Oliver was courageous enough to award a penalty".

But it was in a post-match interview that Buffon was most emotional, calling out Oliver and his wife. There had been a feeling at the Bernabeu that this might be his year, too: he had made a number of saves, marshalled his defence and kept Real Madrid at bay throughout.

"I don't know if it was correct or not, I don't care, but Buffon was also sent off and therefore denied the opportunity to save the Cristiano Ronaldo penalty".

"When people talk about it being a robbery I get angry - it is clear what we are doing annoys a lot of people", Zidane said on Saturday.
