Real Madrid’s Luka Modric has hit back at Bayern München players who were complaining about the referee’s decisions in the Champions League quarter-finals.
“I feel sorry that there are controversies after our win against Bayern because I am convinced we were better in two games, created more chances and once again made Manuel Neuer look great,” Modric said to Sportske novosti.
“I am used to it now that every refereeing decision in Real’s favour gets big publicity and when it goes against us, no one notices it. Bayern got a penalty that never was in Munich, Sergio Ramos’ own goal came after an offside and Vidal should have got a second yellow in the 47th minute.”
“But I don’t want to discuss what Barcelona’s Gerard Pique has said about referees I was against VAR in Japan at the Club World Cup because it lasted too long and match officials were not handling it well. But after I saw it in the France v Spain game, I saw it can be very good for football.”
