The Real Madrid forward said: 'The referee made a lot of mistakes. We needed to have a referee who was up to the level of the match. He looked very pale and nervous. I don’t want to justify the result but he was poor.'
current Balon d’Or winner also hinted at an anti-Madrid conspiracy when
he said: 'There were people who did not want us to win and Barcelona to
be left out of the title race.
'It upsets some when Madrid win. People
get envious. The treatment is not the same. People want Barcelona to
stay in the title race and that is where they still are.'
