The 'Atlanta' coach Gian Piero Gasperini, 63, has questioned the standards of officiating a football match after his team lost to Real Madrid (1-0), in the champion's league on Wednesday February, 24th.
The above reaction was sparked after Remo Freuler was given a red card, just 17 minutes into the game. It was seen that Freuler challenged the Real Madrid player 'Ferland Mendy' on the edge of his own team's box, after it was obvious Ferland Mendy was going to score a goal.
The Atlanta team was left with a 10-man squad after the officiating referee 'Tobias Stieler' issued the midfielder a red card.
Below are were the words of Gasperini after he was interviewed by 'Sky Sport Italia'.
"If the can't tell the difference between a challenge and a foul, then they are meant to go and get a different job, frankly. They should get people who played football to referee instead" Gasperini frustratedly spoke.
Will Gasperini be summoned by UEFA over what he said. What do you think?
