Watch How Referee Michael Oilver Awarded A Late Penalty To Real Madrid

Buffon Top Five Keepers

Andrea Pirlo claims he would have reacted to Juventus' heartbreaking Champions League exit at Real Madrid in the same manner as Gianluigi Buffon. Buffon later came under fire for calling the official "a bag of rubbish for a heart" in the post-match conference.

"When Gigi spoke about the referee I couldn't understand him, honestly", the former Italy global said on Sky Sport Italia.

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.

"All I'll say is that you can't be that cynical in the 93rd minute, to shatter the dreams of a team that had given everything it had to give. It means you don't know where you are, which teams are playing, you don't know s***".

"In order to avoid that you have to be completely ready, you can't make yourself the protagonist because you can't handle the pressure".

"(The penalty) ruined everything, including Buffon's farewell to the Champions League.

"This referee does not have the appropriate personality to scale these stages".

Michael Oliver's wife is still receiving death threats and abuse from Juventus fans.

In the wake of the kidnap, there were allegations and counter allegations about whether the girls were truly kidnapped or not. The lecture is titled "Towards a just and good society: Renewing our commitment to the girl child in Nigeria".

Buffon has since seen replays of Medhi Benatia's supposed push on Lucas Vazquez which led to the award of a debatable spot-kick, and he stands by his initial reaction.

Michael Oliver probably won't be welcome in Italy any time soon.

Buffon had to be restrained by his team mates before reluctantly leaving the pitch. There had been a feeling at the Bernabeu that this might be his year, too: he had made a number of saves, marshalled his defence and kept Real Madrid at bay throughout.

'Even if I was excessive, I said what I thought, that he should not have given that penalty.

The decision had Buffon in particular incensed and the legendary 'keeper was sent off for man-handling the referee.

Buffon's dismissal generated a storm back home with Turin daily La Stampa lamenting "the beauty of football, and its cruelty".

"VAR has to be introduced", Agnelli told Mediaset Premium.

The controversial VAR, which will be used at this year's World Cup for the first time, has been adopted by the German Bundesliga and Italian Serie A, but the idea has not been universally welcomed with Uefa.
