Massimo Allegri Defends Gianluigi Buffon For His Sending Off Against Real

Referee Michael Oliver gave Real Madrid a late penalty which saw them edge past Juventus

The goalkeeper said Oliver's decision "was one of an animal, of a beast, not of a human being".

Buffon was scathing of Oliver's decision when he spoke to the media after the match, saying he had a "bag of rubbish for a heart".

Police are investigating threatening text messages sent to the wife of Premier League referee Michael Oliver, the BBC reports.

'The content remains and I stand by all of it, I had to let that out, even if it damaged my reputation. I felt defrauded. Not defrauded of the result, but of the night.

But after that? It seems like they're going to be fine as well. "We've got to do better than we think we can do, even". JaVale McGee scored 15 points and played aggressive defense while Green had 12 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds.

Juve cancelled out a 3-0 deficit to draw level in the tie, only for Cristiano Ronaldo's penalty to send the defending champions through to the last four following Medhi Benatia's clumsy challenge on Lucas Vazquez.

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli, also upset with the penalty, has called for the video assistant referee (VAR) to be used in the Champions League.

The goalkeeper also admitted his emotions were still raw after the game when he issued his criticism of Oliver, but he said he didn't hold a grudge against the 33-year-old, instead blaming a lack of experience. Let the pitch do the talking.

Juventus' coach Max Allegri has come out in defence of his goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, after the player launched into a furious rant at referee Michael Oliver, following Wednesday's Champions League quarter final against Real Madrid.

Rugby Players Ireland issue statement on Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding
The treatment that I have received since my acquittal, both fair and unfair, has made me even more determined to prove myself. The IRFU and Ulster Rugby conducted an internal review in the aftermath of the non-guilty verdict for Jackson and Olding.

"I'm sure Oliver will have a great career in future, but he's too young to officiate a match like that. It means you don't know where you are, what teams you face, what football is: you don't really know shit".

However, the Italian great was quoted previous year saying he wanted to end his career the same way Zinedine Zidane did over a decade ago. I got emotional. It was just priceless.

He told Mediaset Premium: "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". To be honest with you, it will be hard for a lot of people to take such decision at that period of time being human.
