Zidane is really angry at VAR

Zinedine Zidane noted he is “very angry” after a disputed VAR decision went against Real Madrid in a frustrating 2-2 draw against Sevilla on Sunday, which stopped them from pursuing Atletico Madrid at the top of the LaLiga. During a review of a 78th-minute spot-kick won by Karim Benzema, the referees decided an earlier play at the other end involved handball into the box by Real Madrid defender Eder Militao. So instead of giving Real Madrid a spot-kick, Sevilla were awarded one. Ivan Rakitic netted to take a one-goal advantage before Eden Hazard equalised deep in stoppage time. While the Frenchman had the call explained to him, he said later: “What they told me did not convince me. I’m really angry,” Zidane told reporters. “I spoke with the referee to seek an explanation. It’s challenging because we deserve so much more, but it is what it is.”

Real Madrid are going to fight until the end

He added later in his press conference: “I don’t understand anything from the referee. If there is a Militao handball, it is Sevilla handball as well. I am not convinced by what he told me. I never talk about the referee, but today I am angry. Please do not ask me more about this. I have already said what I think. They have to explain the rules of handball to me, and that’s it. We’re going to fight until the end. Until the death”. Asked if he trusted VAR, Zidane added: “I trust football. What I say is that I saw two handballs, and they just called ours.” Real Madrid could have passed first placed Atletico Madrid with a win but instead stuck two points behind their rivals. They are level on points with Barcelona, ​​keeping the tiebreaker the Blaugrana for second place, and sit four points ahead of Sevilla.

There are three more matches for each of the top four sides, with Real Madrid still to play Granada, Athletic Bilbao and Villarreal.
