Soccer: FIFA ref chief scolds Buffon for Oliver comments
You decide in less than a min, like goalies
16 Aprile 2018
Rome, April 16 - FIFA refereeing supreme Massimo Busacca on Monday scolded Juventus skipper Gianluigi Buffon for saying ref Michael Oliver should have thought of the moment in the match when he gave a 92nd minute penalty for Real Madrid that allowed Cristiano Ronaldo to win the tie 4-3 on aggregate after Buffon was sent off for protesting. "The ref is a job where you have to decide in less than second and you can't think about many things," Busacca told Premium Sport over a decision many Italians thought was wrong but most neutral thought correct. "It's like for goalkeepers, you have to save with your instinct without thinking, and it's the same for us. "We have to focus on the decision of the moment, which is already tough to take."
