Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr slams referee for being biased after Man City defeat
Vinicius Junior claims Real Madrid were treated unfairly by the referee in their 2-1 home defeat by Manchester City in the Champions League on Wednesday evening.
The 19-year-old winger also believes Gabriel Jesus' 78th-minute equaliser should have been ruled out for a foul on Sergio Ramos.
Jesus made slight contact with Ramos as he rose to head home Kevin De Bruyne's cross from the left and cancel out Isco's opening goal.
Then the visitors earned a golden chance to complete the turnaround when substitute Raheem Sterling drew a foul in the area from Dani Carvajal.
De Bruyne converted from 12 yards in the 83rd minute to ensure City took a remarkable result from the Santiago Bernabeu ahead of the second leg at the Etihad Stadium.
Los Blancos' woes were compounded when captain Ramos was sent off for bringing down Jesus as the last man in the 86th minute.
And Vinicius Jr felt Real Madrid suffered at the hands of referee Daniele Orsato, telling reporters: "Gabriel Jesus committed a foul in the first goal and everyone knows it.
"We have the VAR but the referee didn't want to go and have a look at the play. I could see it from the sidelines and it was clear.
"Referees always come here and make decisions against us on purpose, it's always the same. We are the team that has won the most league titles and most Champions League, it will always be like this."
Meanwhile, Jesus maintains that he did not foul Ramos in the build-up to his goal.
"Football is a contact sport, I didn't push him," said the Brazilian striker.
"I barely used my hand and didn't make a big movement, I stayed still, it wasn't a foul."
Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane had no complaints about the foul and said he was more angry with the way his side switched off in the final quarter of an hour.
