No regrets for Buffon over referee rant

Buffon Top Five Keepers

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri defends Gianluigi Buffon for his red-card reaction during the Old Lady's Champions League exit away at Real Madrid on Wednesday night.

Juventus nearly knocked Real Madrid out of the Champions League quarter-finals after scoring three times at the Santiago Bernabeu to level the aggregate scores following their 3-0 loss to the Spanish in the first-leg of the competition.

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. "But he's driven by setting new records and the dream of winning Champions League".

Oliver's decision to show Buffon a red card after the 40-year-old goalkeeper had aggressively remonstrated with him brought the curtain down on the World Cup winner's Champions League career.

"It was a 10th of a penalty. a human being can not destroy dreams like that at the end of an extraordinary comeback on a dubious situation", he told Italian broadcaster Mediaset Premium.

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

He said: "The team gave its all but a human being can not destroy dreams like that at the end of an extraordinary comeback on a dubious situation. I could've told the referee anything at that moment, but he had to understand the degree of the disaster he was creating", he continued.

But Morrison said the district also installed the locks that were created to prevent someone from entering the classrooms. The principal told him that initially, the assistant principal tried to remove the substitute.

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

Premier League referee Oliver, 33, had no hesitation with his decision and showed enormous character to give such a monumental spot kick.

"Oliver was doing his job and hard to argue against his decisions". It is fine for a player a fan or a commentator to question a referee's decision.

Buffon was sent off against Real Madrid on Wednesday night.

Buffon's outburst, in what now looks to have been his last Champions League match, has drawn inevitable comparisons with Zinedine Zidane, the Real Madrid manager who ended his own worldwide career in similarly apocalyptic fashion with a headbutt and a red card against Buffon's Italy in the 2006 World Cup final.

Another said: "I won't be surprised if Italian Mafia send a few of their agents and beat the s*** out of Michael Oliver". "He's been an enormous player". But in this instance it provided a penalty kick to Madrid and near certain Champions League elimination for Juventus.

Said Agnelli: "A goal-line official behind the line isn't the same thing as an official in front of a video replay. Then they played a good game - they were good and we were bad".
