'I am Gigi Buffon': Keeper stands by Oliver outburst

Gigi Buffon sent off

Buffon was infuriated by referee Michael Oliver's decision to award Madrid a penalty in the 93rd minute after Juve had clawed back a three-goal first-leg deficit at the Bernabeu. Buffon himself was scathing in his criticism of the referee.

But Lucas Vazquez went down under a challenge from Mehdi Benatia in injury time and Oliver pointed to the spot.

The Italians were winning 3-0 on the evening - thereby levelling the tie on aggregate - when Oliver awarded a penalty in stoppage time.

"This referee has no heart, he has a garbage bag instead of a heart", Buffon told Italian channel Mediaset Premium after the match.

He went on to say that "If a referee doesn't have the courage and personality to manage a game on the pitch, then he should sit in the stands alongside his wife and have some chips".

But that was his last chance of winning the Champions League, and to have had it ripped away from him in such a controversial manner must have been heartbreaking.

He told reporters, as quoted by Marca: "I don't understand why they are protesting".

"If he's not fouled, Lucas scores". During the game, Benatia and the rest of them had already been kicking us from behind.

With managers Rafa Benitez and Jose Mourinho cancelling each other's sides out in the semi-final second leg, another dour goal-less draw seemed inevitable before Spaniard Luis Garcia's "ghost goal" - which Mourinho called it as the ball never completely crossed the line.

"Bayern Munich had the exact same thing a year ago [against Real Madrid]". "But we can not change it".

If an outing against Real is to be Buffon's last in Europe, and the end nigh on a domestic front, then he will bow out having made over 850 club appearances and earned 176 caps for his country.

It was Mario Mandzukic who headed from Sami Khedira's cross to give the Old Lady a ideal start, and it was he who doubled their lead with another header before half time. Mario Mandzukic headed home twice in the first half before Blaise Matuidi capitalised on an error from Real stopper Keylor Navas.

"He could have missed out on a lot - the World Cup with Italy or the events in Madrid on Wednesday, for example - if he was not driven by ever new records and also the dream of necessarily winning the Champions League".
