Champions League: Referee Michael Oliver is heartless - Buffon says on Real Madrid defeat

Juventus captain Gianluigi Buffon has slammed referee Michael Oliver for awarding Real Madrid a last-gasp penalty, saying he has a rubbish bin instead of a heart.

Real Madrid forward Lucas Vazquez was brought down in stoppage time by Medhi Benatia, with English referee Oliver pointing to the spot for Ronaldo to convert for a 4-3 aggregate victory in the Champions League quarter-final second leg. Late protests for the penalty award saw Buffon sent off on his final Champions League appearance.

Buffon said: "There must be some sensitivity to understanding the importance of some moments and if you do not have this sensitivity to what's going on in the game, you're not worthy of being on the pitch. In this case, he should be in the stands with his parents, with his friends, with fries and Coca-Cola, and watch the game. You can not do something like that. This referee doesn't have a heart. He has a rubbish bin instead of a heart."
