Real Madrid left annoyed by non-stop referee talk
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has insisted that there has been too much focus on LaLiga referees in the 2019-20 season.
On Friday Gerard Pique had hinted that the referees were favouring Real Madrid saying, it would be “difficult” for Barcelona to win the title.
In the match , Sergio Ramos’ penalty, for a foul on Vinicius Junior, put Madrid ahead before Adnan Januzaj had an effort ruled out for offside.
Moments later, Karim Benzema doubled Madrid’s lead after a VAR check for a possible handball.
“What bothers me is that in the end we only talk about the referees, it seems that we have not done anything on the field,” the Madrid head coach told in a news conference.
“But we are not going to control the controversy. We won on the field and I think the victory is deserved.”
Zidane added: “There is a penalty and I think that for the goal, Karim touches it with his shoulder.
“These are things of the referee and as always I do not get involved, he does his job and nothing else. I have to respect these things and think only about what we did.
“It is a deserved victory, which is the most important thing for us.”
