Champions League: How referee helped Real Madrid win last season’s title – Pochettino

Former Saint-Germain manager, Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that the referee’s refusal to review an incident helped Real Madrid win the Champions League last season.

Pochettino was recently sacked by the Ligue 1 side after failing to win ’s biggest club prize.

The 50-year-old saw PSG eliminated by Manchester City in the semi-final in his first campaign.

Last season, a famous Real Madrid comeback sent the French champions packing.

Pochettino, in an interview with Infobae, recounted the injustice of the tie, which in his opinion was a foul not given on Gianluigi Donnarumma after Karim Benzema robbed him for the first Real Madrid goal.

I think that it was a foul and if they would have revised it on VAR, we would be talking about something else, of the elimination of Madrid,” Pochettino said.
