Barcelona president’s request for footage of disallowed goal vs Real Madrid to be dismissed

Barcelona president Joan Laporta came out earlier today and made a series of statements calling out the referee and the VAR from last night’s match against Real Madrid.

Barça argue that Lamine Yamal’s disallowed goal for an on-the-line save by Andriy Lunin should have counted.

As such Laporta stated that he wants the Spanish Football Federation and the Referees’ Technical Committee (CTA) to release all images and video footage available for the disallowed goal.

Furthermore, he stated that Barcelona would demand the El Clasico be replayed if they found any error in the referee’s decision.

CTA will reject Laporta’s request

However, as per the latest update from MARCA, the request made by the Barcelona president is likely to fall on deaf ears.

The Technical Committee of Referees does not plan to grant access to the footage to Barcelona, or any other team. This is something that has been strictly enforced since the first moment of the implementation of VAR.

The Catalan club knows it and the rest of the teams know it and they are not going to make an exception with what happened in the Clasico.

What’s more, the CTA considers referee Cesar Soto Grado’s officiating on Sunday night to be more than remarkable.

They believe they have nothing to reproach the referee for and emphasise that he was able to control the match to perfection.

Real Madrid not bothered

As far as Real Madrid are concerned, they are not at all bothered by what Laporta said and all the noise being made by Barcelona.

At Valdebebas, they think that everyone can use whatever arguments they want and however they want.

The relationship between the two clubs is at a real low, with the Super League the only thing they share in common at this point.

‘It’s a beautiful thing’ – Real Madrid megastar raring to play his sixth UCL final

Real Madrid’s most crucial endeavour of the season edges closer as they gear up to take Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final.

Emotions are sure to be running high not only because of the monumental occasion; but also because a certain Toni Kroos will be playing his final game in the royal white jersey.

The German will be parting ways after enjoying 10 trophy-filled seasons and will aim to add another to his illustrious cabinet before he travels to Germany for the Euros in what will officially be his last rodeo in professional football.

Now, speaking in the build-up to the grand showdown with Borussia, Kroos has given his two cents on the team’s preparation and the morale inside the locker room.

On the upcoming Champions League final

Kroos acknowledged it felt incredible to play his sixth final for the Merengues, but claimed none of this success would have been possible without the efforts of a cohesive team.

“My sixth final? It’s a beautiful thing. I was lucky to play for a team that was able to achieve these successes.

“I am part of this, but I do not like to be alone, there is always the team. Without a team, it is impossible to do this,” Kroos remarked during an interview with RMTV.

Additionally, the German midfielder argued that Real Madrid were in high spirits today and they have the potential to surprise people.

“Today I saw everyone enjoying and looking forward to. The final is on Saturday. There is a competitor that may surprise some people.”

Furthermore, Kroos is eager to close his Real Madrid career on a high and claims this will be his last effort before riding off into the sunset.

“This will be my last effort for Real Madrid. Hala Madrid,” he exclaimed.

On his farewell game

Kroos played his final game at the Santiago Bernabeu against Real Betis recently, and his emotional substitution in the 86th minute marked a poignant farewell.

As Kroos came off the pitch, he confessed that seeing his daughter cry was a difficult pill to swallow and he will carry these special moments till the very end.

“I tried not to cry on Saturday but when I saw my daughter cry it changed. It was very difficult for me. I will never forget these moments. I will remember forever, my children and my wife too,” he said.

The 34-year-old also mentioned that whenever he feels like experiencing a tear-jerker, he will take a trip down memory lane by looking at the farewell pictures.

“Saturday was the night of a lifetime. If one day at home I want to cry, I will look at the farewell pictures.”
