Real Madrid’s spokesman Emilio Butragueño talked to the club’s official TV channel and shared his thoughts about the controversy surrounding some of the decisions taken by the referee during the 1-1 draw between Real Madrid and Girona.
“We don’t like talking about the referees, but what we witnessed here is very strange. Unluckily, we had everything going against us,” said Butragueño.
The former player joined coach Carlo Ancelotti, who said that the referee “made the penalty up” during his post-match press conference.
Real Madrid are very unhappy about the penalty called on Marco Asensio and also Rodrygo’s foul on Girona’s goalkeeper, as both calls probably cost the team the three points.
Los Blancos will have a very important match against Celtic next Wednesday, a game which they can use to gain some confidence and momentum after their two poor performances against Leipzig and Girona last week.
