Real Madrid vs Bayern Munich controversy: Thomas Tuchel feels ‘betrayed’ after Assistant referee apology

Bayern Munich manager, Thomas Tuchel, has said he feels ‘betrayed’ following a controversial refereeing decision in their Champions League defeat to Real Madrid on Wednesday.

Alphonso Davies gave Tuchel’s men the lead in the 68th minute, but Joselu netted a late brace to complete a stunning comeback.

However, after Joselu’s second goal, Mattheus De Light put the ball in the back of the net, but the goal was ruled out as the defender was adjudged offside.

Speaking to TNT Sports after the game, Thomas Tuchel claimed it was “against the rules” and the linesman had apologised.

He said: “We are almost through, it’s almost there and there was a very unusual mistake from our best player for the equaliser, then we conceded the second one in stoppage time.

“Then we scored one and there was a disastrous decision from the linesman and the referee. It feels like a betrayal in the end.

“The linesman says sorry, but that does not help. To raise the flag in a moment like this… The referee sees we get the second ball and we get the shot – it’s a very, very bad decision. It’s against the rules. It’s a disaster. It’s hard to swallow, but that’s the way it is.”
