Champions League: Why we lost to Real Madrid – PSG manager, Unai Emery



Paris Saint-Germain manager, Unai Emery, blamed his side’s loss at Real Madrid on two penalty decisions against them in Wednesday’s Champions League game.

Emery, who accused the referee of bias, stated that PSG “deserved better”.

Adrien Rabiot put the visitors ahead, but Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty levelled things just before the break.

PSG had penalty appeals of their own turned away early in the second half when Sergio Ramos appeared to block a shot with his arm.

Their frustrations were compounded by two late goals from the hosts.

Reacting, Emery said “The team played well; they showed character. We deserved a better result but the referee did not help us.

“Their penalty was not very clear and there was a clear penalty for us for a handball by Ramos. The referee took decisions that damaged us”, Sky Sports quoted him as saying.
