Real Madrid midfielder, Toni Kroos has come out to he is still pissed with the decision that cost Real the title. He recently revealed that he is not someone who likes to moan, but he is very annoyed at the decision.
According to him, Zidane never really says anything about decisions and he always protects the referees, so for him to discuss with the ref vs Sevilla meant he saw everything wrong with the call.
Kroos added that the referee tried to justify himself after the game, but his explanation wasn’t convincing.
His words, “I’m not someone who likes to moan, but, in that case, I was extremely annoyed.”
“Zidane never really says anything about decisions and he always protects the referees. So, the fact that he went to the referee after the game was a sign that he too felt a little ripped off, as did I.”
“The referee tried to justify himself, but it’s a very clear wrong decision in my opinion.”
“My opinion is very clear and it is very rare that I disagree with the referee at all. I did on that day.”
“If you feel you’re being disadvantaged, that’s one thing where I say ‘it’s not on’.”
“[Militao] had his back to the ball and didn’t even see the ball, while in slow motion you can see that the ball first goes to his shoulder and then to his arm. We were told that if the ball ricochets off another part of the body, then it’s not a handball.”
“To look at it again and to revise it, because he didn’t whistle it live, is a serious intervention in the championship.”
“If, in the end, we don’t have enough [to win the title] in my opinion this was a situation that also contributed to it. For me this is clearly a situation that had an influence.”
“It’s not about being bitter, it’s about being angry.”
