Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has stated that Sevilla director went a little overboard following their match against the Galacticos. The Spaniard claimed that he would have taken his players off the pitch if VAR overturned Sevilla’s goal.
His comments stem from the fact that the Seville outfit saw their – and Luuk De Jong’s – first goal being overturned by VAR. The Dutchman found the net again and this time also his effort was under the scanner for a possible handball in the buildup.
The referee, however, opted to grant the goal and Monchi later revealed that he would have led his players to a walk-out if that happened. Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, meanwhile, didn’t seem to agree with the transfer guru
“I don't think so [the referee’s decision influencing the outcome]. The ref only did what he had to do. It was hand ball but he didn't blow for it. So what can I say? I'm not going to get involved in that. It was a complicated game for everyone. The final result reflects what happened out on the pitch," he said, as per AS.
“What Monchi said is his responsibility. It's not for me to say whether he is right or not. At the end of the day it's the referee who decides. What he said seemed a little over the top to me but I am not going to stop Sevilla's Director of Sport from saying what he wants to say.”
