Zinedine Zidane is furious at the “shameful” way Juventus talked about Real Madrid after the Champions League quarter-final. “People are jealous.”
The Coach commented in his Press conference after the controversial last-gasp penalty, awarded for a Medhi Benatia nudge on Lucas Vazquez, and Gigi Buffon’s subsequent red card for dissent.
“It’s shameful what has been said about us and the way we have been treated, the suggestion it was robbery. I can’t believe people say such things.
“The 3-0 lead for Juventus surprised me, but that’s the beauty of football. I didn’t think it could happen, and yet it did. At times it goes your way, at times it goes against you.
“What I read from Buffon was something he said in the heat of the moment and we accept his feelings at that time, but we deserved to qualify, that’s what interests me.
“Our success is disturbing some people and makes them jealous, but nothing will change the history of this club, which is the best in the world. All the controversy created by that penalty doesn’t seem normal to me.
“Even if Juve played very well, we are in the Champions League semi-final.”
