Pochettino slams officials after PSG’s Champions League exit and asked why the VAR was not used to rule out Madrid’s first goal.
The French League 1 league one leaders started on a good note with Mbappe’s first-half goal to place them on 2-0 on aggregate.
It looked like the League 1 leaders had the game under control but Benzema stole the show in the second half scoring a remarkable 17-minute hat trick to book the Spanish giants in the quarter final.
Pochettino believes that Benzema should have been penalized for a foul on Donnaruma which led to the build-up of the first goal.
I thought it was an obvious foul on me. Benzema pushed me off balance and the officials working at the VAR favored Real Madrid in that call without the decision being fair.Gianluigi Donnsaruma
I wonder what the VAR does because there is a foul. When you see the action, it’s a foul. “After that, the match changed. For 60 minutes we dominated and that goal changed everything. “It’s not easy to explain the defeat. after the goal, the nervousness and the feeling of injustice hurt us a lot.Mauricio Pochettino
The rest of the season is going to be very difficult, the Champions League has been PSG’s goal for years, everyone knows it. The fans are going to be upset, we know it.
