Real Madrid lost El Clásico, 4-3, to Barcelona on Sunday. Barcelona were granted two penalties in the game. The first also resulted in Sergio Ramos getting a red card, while the second resulted in the winner.
Surprise! Cristiano Ronaldo is upset with the referee.
CR7: "I've been here 5 years now, I'm slowly understanding how things work. Since I've been here, Madrid have never benefitted from the ref"— AS English (@English_AS) March 23, 2014
Wait wait wait whoa whoa whoa. Did you say that Madrid have never benefitted from the ref? What about, I don't know, that thing that happened 10 minutes before Ramos was shown a red card?
Oh yes, that. That time when you were tripped outside the penalty area, but were granted a penalty. Guess Cristiano wasn't aware of that. Nor is Ramos, who thinks this is all one big conspiracy.
Ramos: "There are some things you can't fight against. This was pre-meditated".— AS English (@English_AS) March 23, 2014
Getting heated after a big loss is understandable, but blaming the referees for that loss when they gave you a huge favorable call isn't a good look.
