Real Madrid star criticized referee post Manchester City defeat

Spanish giants Real Madrid frowned over referee’s decision-making post their defeat against Manchester City at the Bernabeu. The score that equated Manchester City and Real Madrid should actually have been ruled out for a foul says Real Madrid forward Vinícius Júnior. It was Isco who had given the La Liga giants the lead in the 60th minute but Madrid was struck back just eight minutes later.

Later, City forward Gabriel Jesus headed home a perfect Kevin De Bruyne cross but Vinicius opines it shouldn’t have been permitted because of a foul from the City forward on Sergio Ramos. With Gabriel’s guidance, De Bruyne went on to score City’s winner from the penalty spot five minutes later.

“Gabriel Jesus committed a foul in the first goal and everyone knows it,” the Madrid winger said after City’s win at the Bernabeu.

“We have the VAR but the referee didn’t want to go and have a look at the play. I could see it from the sidelines and it was clear.

“Referees always come here and make decisions against us on purpose, it’s always the same. We are the team that has won the most league titles and most Champions League, it will always be like this.”

Whereas on the other side, Jesus, who had an admirable shot for City during the win with Guardiola choosing to go on the field without a striker, denied any sort of foul done against the Madrid captain.

“Football is a contact sport, I didn’t push him, I barely used my hand and didn’t make a big movement, I stayed still, it wasn’t a foul, Jesus said.

While Madrid’s Ramos was sent off for a foul on the Brazilian in the 86th minute which implies he will be missing the return leg at the Etihad commencing within three weeks.
