Home Sports Modric & Ramos Disagree Over Real Madrid’s Home Defeat
Luka Modric disagreed with Sergio Ramos over the main reason for Real Madrid’s defeat at home to Real Sociedad on Sunday.
Ramos hit out at the “scandalous” officiating from referee Jose Munuera, as well as his use of VAR as his side went down 2 – 0 at home in a game which saw Lucas Vazquez.
“The referee played a big role in things,” he said.
“I’ve always defended the VAR system, but it has to be improved because what we’ve seen was scandalous.
“He could have awarded the penalty and then consulted the VAR. After seeing the penalty incidents in the dressing room, all we ask for is fairness.
“There are times when we’re punished for our behaviour on the pitch and the referees’ committee should do the same with the officials. The VAR is in place but you’ve got to know how to use it and consult it.
“We’re motivated and fighting for a La Liga title that’ll be tough and it’s made all the more difficult when things like this happen.”
But Modric said that Real’s players had to look at themselves following a loss which leaves them 10 points adrift of league leaders Barcelona.
“He (Munuera) has not had a good day,” admitted Modric in the mixed zone, via Marca.
“But our problem is not the referee or VAR, although they haven’t helped us.
“Our problems are other things.
“Many of us are not at our level.
“We cannot take a s*** at the beginning of every game.
“We have to be clear, it’s not a matter of luck.
“We are creating a lot but the ball won’t go in and we are giving a lot but there are reasons that explain why things are not going well.”
