Some in football are disappointed with the referees and the VAR after Madrid’s victory
Real Madrid are increasingly disappointed in how refereeing calls distract from the team in LaLiga. Los Blancos were embroiled in controversy again on Sunday, with their 1-0 win over Athletic Club coming courtesy of a Sergio Ramos penalty kick. Until now, the players, coaches, and directors of Real Madrid have tried to remain calm and act out. Although people like Imanol Alguacil and Gaizka Garitano praised the hard work of Zinedine Zidane’s side. The most post-match comments were negative and surrounded the VAR. Players from other clubs, in particular, voiced their disappointment with the referees and the VAR after the victory of Real Madrid, all in an attempt to justify the success of Los Blancos. Real Madrid regards these comments as an attempt to denigrate the team, who have performed exceptionally well under challenging circumstances.
Zidane’s squad made themselves the favorites of the Liga title. Despite many things going against them, no more than the start time and the matches’ schedule. “We are not going to win LaLiga because of the referees. And we are not going to lose it because of them,” Ramos said at full time against Athletic. “We should not give any honor to the referees, because we are top. They haven’t done anything decisive.”
