Buffon Has No Regrets Over Referee Rant

Buffon Top Five Keepers

In hindsight he was probably the latter but that hasn't helped Zinedine Zidane be any happier with the reaction.

Human error is an integral feature of refereeing - which is why it does not actually matter, when discussing Buffon's reaction, whether Oliver's decision was technically right or not. A VAR would have only been used if either the penalty kick or the red card were "clear and obvious" errors by the match officials, and neither of the decisions fell into that category. The Juve goalkeeper will remain a legend but the way he handled himself and berated the English ref certainly deserved an early bath.

Match-winner Ronaldo defended the penalty decision by Oliver and had a dig at Juve claiming they were fouling him all game.

"It's embarrassing when people talk about a robbery".

'Even if I was excessive, I said what I thought, that he should not have given that penalty.

This most pressured football drama was the highest of tests for the time-served football rule drilled into children when they first pull their socks up: never argue with the ref. Buffon failed it after the penalty was awarded.

"What we're doing annoys a lot of people".

The tie was finely poised before Bayern's task became insurmountable after they were reduced to 10 men in the 84th minute, despite TV replays showing that Arturo Vidal won the ball clearly.

Buffon's moment of madness.


After Juventus had wiped out Real's three-goal advantage from the first leg with a Mario Mandzukic double and Blaise Matuidi's second-half goal, Lucas Vazquez was bundled over in the box by Mehdi Benatia in the third minute of added time and Oliver pointed to the spot.

"A human being can not whistle for an incident so doubtful after a game like that, unless you have a garbage bin instead of a heart".

"If you do not have personality and courage, you should go to the stands to watch the match with your wife and a Sprite". It means you don't know where you are, which teams are playing, you don't know shit.

You can't say he's made a mistake.

"When Gigi spoke about the referee I couldn't understand him, honestly", Del Piero told Sky Sport Italia.

"I would die for this club", Buffon told Juventus TV.

"It's a fundamental question whether you find the best time to retire from football", the former Germany keeper said.

The goalkeeper also received support from his manager, Massimiliano Allegri, per the BBC: "If on one occasion he said the things he did, in a situation as tough as Wednesday night's, that is understandable and I challenge anyone to react differently".

Whether you agree with Buffon's comments or not, his harsh words were certainly out of character.
