Buffon stands by Oliver rant

Buffon stands by Oliver rant

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. It all ended there, but naturally in the heat of the moment one does feel I'm not saying penalised... It was a night that can never be repeated.

Spain global Martinez finished with a bruised knee, while James Rodriguez picked up a thigh injury in a bruising encounter."You can't always play brilliantly and put the opponent to the wall, sometimes you have to just keep them scoreless", Heynckes said."They hit the bar, which didn't let us rest, but we didn't get nervous".

The incident looked like a soft penalty at first and Buffon's reaction was totally over the top but at least it was slightly understandable.

'Before being a Juventino, I am an Italian, and I really cared about Italian football doing well.

Madrid walked into the game with a comfortable 3 - 0 lead coming from their emphatic victory at Turin.

"I am proud to be the captain of this Juventus side".

In a dramatic end to the match at the Bernabeu in Madrid, Juventus captain and Italy worldwide Buffon was sent off for confronting Oliver over the 93rd-minute penalty decision. But despite that, he thinks it was wrong to give it.

However, as Allegri spoke to the media during Juve's latest press conference, he was quick to give his support to Buffon, saying "I challenge anyone not to react in that situation".

"I can not begin to imagine how he felt when he knew that his lifelong dream of winning the Champions League was ripped from his grasp in such a controversial manner".

He added that referee Oliver, 33, lacked experience and said he shouldn't be officiating at that level. In my view, an experienced referee would make a different evaluation.

Speaking on Saturday, Buffon said he had been defending his "teammates and fans, even in a not very composed fashion".

"Right there, you can not ask a man who lives sport as deeply as I do to be balanced, because even if I expressed these feelings in an exaggerated way, they were still logical thoughts".
