Del Piero: Buffon wrong on ref…

Former Juventus star Alessandro Del Piero has questioned Gianluigi Buffon’s criticism of Champions League referee Michael Oliver.

The goalkeeper hit out following a late penalty decision, receiving a red card and then telling media the Englishman had ‘a rubbish bin in place of a heart’.

“When Gigi spoke about the referee… I found it hard to understand, honestly,” Del Piero admitted on Sky.

“I don’t understand why we should refer to the first leg, that’s how football is and you analyse the moment, whether it’s nice or ugly.

“I think in a few days he’ll say different things about the referee than what he said.”
