“A shame”, Benzema still cringes

The now former PSG coach has still not digested Karim Benzema’s goal after a supposed foul on Donnarumma in the knockout round of the Champions League.

Decidedly, the pill still has so much trouble passing… During a long interview granted to the Argentine media Infobae, Mauricio Pochettino returned, with a touch of bitterness, to the enormous disappointment of the Paris Saint Germain in the round of 16 of the previous Champions League campaign against real Madrid (1-0, 1-3). And obviously, the one who was sacked by the Red and Blue in early July has still not digested the first but registered by Karim Benzema at the Bernabéu after a charge – deemed lawful by the refereeing body – on Gianluigi Donnarumma.

“Benzema’s fault on Donnarumma existed”

“I think Benzema’s foul on Donnarumma existedthus dropped the former Spurs manager. If it had been reviewed by the VAR today we would be talking about something else, the elimination of Real Madrid”. It must be said that this realization of “KB9” precipitated the fall of the Parisians, who nevertheless had the match in hand. They even led 1-0 in Madrid thanks to Kylian Mbappé, already a scorer in the first leg.

“It was a trigger that gave Real Madrid a lot of confidenceadded Mauricio Pochettino. (…) We made a kind of mistake but that’s football and it shouldn’t go beyond a footballing analysis. (…) I believe that there are circumstances in the football that happens. They happen and they cannot be controlled. »

” It’s a shame ! »

Just after the meeting, Pochettino, of a rather calm nature, was out of his hinges after the meeting, using harsh words against the referee of the meeting, Danny Makkelie, and his assessors at the microphone of Canal +. ” It’s a shame ! There is a fault on Donnarumma. It is not possible not to talk about this gross error. It is not possible that this will happen in 2022.”
