Champions League: Pochettino reveals who to blame for PSG’s exit after 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid
Paris Saint-Germain manager, Mauricio Pochettino has criticized the referee for allowing Karim Benzema’s equalizer stand, following their 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
Pochettino feels Benzema fouled goalkeeper, Gianluigi Donnarumma before scoring the goal that began Los Blancos’ comeback.
“It’s a feeling of a lot of injustice, with the goal we conceded.
“It’s a clear foul from Benzema on Donnarumma. It’s a tremendous blow, because we were better in the tie,” Pochettino said.
He added: “I’ve seen the images from every angle. It was not a mistake from the goalkeeper. It’s a foul.
“Little details count, and VAR didn’t see a clear foul. It’s decisive.”
Benzema went on to score two more goals, as Real Madrid progressed into the quarter-finals on a 3-2 aggregate.
