Champions League: Juventus captain Gianluigi Buffon has no regrets for referee rant

Gigi Buffon sent off

Juve players furiously protested the decision, with goalkeeper Buffon receiving a red card, and the 40-year-old pulled no punches in his assessment of the official.

A goal that propelled the Galacticos to the last four stage of the competition to edge closer to winning their third straight European title.

He added: "To be honest I think it is disgraceful, upsetting and deceptive".

Having recorded a 3-0 win over the Italian side over a week ago in Turin, Madrid were favourites to go through the easily, but met a hard Juventus side in the second leg. He was clearly angry by the incident after Juventus had battled back from 3-0 down in the first-leg to level things up at the Bernabeu.

"If he's not fouled, Lucas scores. Anyone who says it was a robbery, I really don't agree".

If Buffon does not play in European competition again, UEFA can not sanction him for his remarks. He doesn't feel pressure.

He had told BT Sport, "It was a soft penalty decision, but we think he just got it right".

Working Families Party Endorses Nixon, Despite Pressure From Cuomo
Nixon, the Sex and the City star, declined to commit to run her campaign through November should she lose the Democratic primary. She is challenging current NY governor Andrew Cuomo - who is running for a third term - for the Democratic party nomination.

"There is nothing left to say". "It's a pity it ended like this, unjustly". When that happens, heads drop and the opposition gain in confidence. "But for Oliver to follow the rule of the game, he was entirely right".

"There's a big chance with the derby on Sunday, we have to recover physical and psychological energy", said Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi "There are seven rounds to go and we'll do everything to earn a very important position".

That temporary switch is set to become permanent in a £36m deal in the close season after Costa impressed for I Bianconeri and, in a post on his personal Instagram page, the 27-year-old explained why trading the Bundesliga for Serie A was the easiest decision he'd ever make.

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

"Of course I have objectives, but there are no certainties", he said on the topic of retirement.

"But those who insinuated - maybe by only reporting part of what I said - that I am going against Gigi, in bad faith or even happy that Juve were eliminated, is hurting me". I could nut somebody - who knows.

"I'd never seen a human being with the courage to give a penalty in such a situation in the 93rd minute".
