‘Referee Guessed Penalty Wrong’- Leicester City Boss Shakespeare Rues Loss Against Atletico Madrid In Champions League
Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare said the referee “guessed” over the penalty decision that led to their defeat at Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.
Jonas Eriksson awarded a spot-kick for a foul on Antoine Griezmann, with replays showing the offence took place outside the box.
Griezmann scored the penalty to give Atletico a 1-0 victory in Spain.
“It is a really disappointing decision by the referee,” said Shakespeare.
“It’s a key moment in the game. He has to get that one right, he can’t guess on those things.
It’s a definite free-kick but it’s out of the box.
“It’s the key decisions you want correct.”
