See Madrid vs Chelsea Referee Familiar with Ancelotti, Tuchel Is Very Upset


Thomas Tuchel expressed dissatisfaction with the leadership referee Szymon Marciniak over Chelsea removed real Madrid in the quarterfinals Champions League. Even more so after the Polish referee was seen chatting with Carlo Ancelotti.

Chelsea managed to beat Madrid 3-2 at the Santiago Bernabeu, Wednesday (14/3/2022) early morning WIB. Three goals from Mason Mount (15′), Antonio Ruediger (51′) and Timo Werner (75′) could only be answered by El Real through goals from Rodrygo (80′) and Karim Benzema (96′).

Even so, this victory did not mean much, because Chelsea previously lost 1-3 in the first leg, so they still had to lift their suitcases with a 4-5 aggregate defeat.

After the match, Tuchel approached Marciniak. He saw the judge was talking to Ancelotti. According to the German tactician, this ‘familiar’ attitude is not good for a referee, especially when it is done right after the game is over.

“I was disappointed to see the referee chatting with my colleague, Ancelotti,” said Tuchel, quoted by The Guardian.

“I know Carlo is a gentleman, a good guy, and when I saw him (the referee) smiling and laughing with the opposing coach, I thought it was a very inopportune time, especially after 120 minutes of fighting, when we were struggling. sucks, then seeing that kind of thing.”

“I think the moment was really wrong,” explained Tuchel.

The former Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain coach also regretted Marciniak’s decision to disallow Marcos Alonso’s goal in the 62nd minute, after the player was declared handball before scoring.

Tuchel didn’t like Marciniak’s reluctance to check replays, and simply believed the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) statement.

“I told him I was very disappointed he didn’t check the replay himself. As a referee, he should remain the boss and not let other people (VAR) sit in the chair and make decisions, while that person doesn’t feel the atmosphere of the game,” Tuchel said. .

“He should stay in charge and check it himself, explain his decision better.”
