"I think it's a total joke - how can I hear this whistle with 95,000 people jumping up and shouting?"

"If there were four, five, six seconds in between, you can make a check for offside. One second, it's a joke.

"I tried to explain there were 95,000 people jumping up, how can I hear the whistle?

"He's been bad all evening, whistling against us. I don't know why he's here tonight.

"We feel betrayed a bit, when it was 1-1 it was all to play for and in my opinion this referee killed the game."
