Gianluigi Buffon 'stands by' Michael Oliver comments

  • Gigi Buffon sent off

The days he has had to consider his comments following Juventus' dramatic exit from the Champions League on Wednesday night have not changed much regarding Gianluigi Buffon's thoughts about referee Michael Oliver.

Goalkeeper Buffon was shown a red card for his furious reaction towards the English official, who awarded Madrid a crucial stoppage-time penalty in the Champions League quarter-final second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu.

At 40 years old, Buffon may never play in the Champions League again and, when Oliver gave the penalty, Buffon received a red card shortly after for the nature of his protest against the decision.

Juve legend Alessandro del Piero felt that the experienced keeper would regret the remarks, but Buffon is refusing to backtrack.

"It is an important question, if he finds the right time to end his career", the former Germany and Bayern Munich star told Bild.

However, as Allegri spoke to the media during Juve's latest press conference, he was quick to give his support to Buffon, saying "I challenge anyone not to react in that situation".

"I don't know if it was correct or not, I don't care, but Buffon was also sent off and therefore denied the opportunity to save the Cristiano Ronaldo penalty..."

Buffon added: 'A referee with more experience would not have blown his whistle and decided not to become the protagonist of the match.

"Real Madrid deserved to go through over the two legs, I wish them the best and it has always been an honour for me to face this club, but objectively we at least deserved to go to extra time". "When I don't feel I'm good enough, I put myself in a corner".

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. I got emotional. It was just priceless.

"I'm not here to judge what the referee saw, because it was a borderline incident", he said, continuing his diatribe.

With the game in the 97th minute, Ronaldo made no mistake from 12 yards, ensuring a 3-1 defeat on the night but a 4-3 win on aggregate. "I had to let that out, even if it damaged my reputation", he said.

Speaking on Saturday, he said he had been defending "my team-mates and fans, even in a not very composed fashion".

Buffon is yet to apologise to Oliver, who has been receiving all kinds of threats since the game, as has, indefensibly, his wife.
