Rome, April 16 - FIFA refereeing supreme Massimo
Busacca on Monday scolded Juventus skipper Gianluigi Buffon for
saying ref Michael Oliver should have thought of the moment in
the match when he gave a 92nd minute penalty for Real Madrid
that allowed Cristiano Ronaldo to win the tie 4-3 on aggregate
after Buffon was sent off for protesting.
"The ref is a job where you have to decide in less than
second and you can't think about many things," Busacca told
Premium Sport over a decision many Italians thought was wrong
but most neutral thought correct.
"It's like for goalkeepers, you have to save with your
instinct without thinking, and it's the same for us.
"We have to focus on the decision of the moment, which is
already tough to take."
Buffon said Oliver should have been more "sensitive" to the
moment in the match, when Juve were heading for an unlikely
extra time after overturning a 3-0 home defeat.
He also said the ref had a "rubbish bin where his heart
should be".
