Ander Herrera was going to finish his post-match interview at the microphone of Julien Laurens, journalist on the field for RMC Sport, at the Etihad Stadium when he wanted to add a last sentence: "We always talk about respect with the referees. . He said
to Leandro Paredes. If, we are told that, we have a suspension of 4 or 5 games "The Dutchman Björn Kuipers, 48, who had led the Parisians this season in Barcelona (4-1), in particular annoyed the Parisians during the expulsion Angel Di Maria in the 69th for a gesture of humor towards Fernandinho, during this defeat in the semi-final second leg of the Champions League against Manchester City (2-0).
Asked about his teammate's comments, Marco Verratti immediately confirmed: “Yes, in Paredes, but he also told me
twice. Me, if I say that, I take 10 games. For them it's normal. I talk a lot but I would never say anything like that. At the microphone of Sky Italia, the midfielder continued his remarks: "The referee? What bothers me is when he messes you up. We speak with respect. He sent us out for a walk 3-4 times. And suddenly we get angry. "
🗣 "The referee told me 'F ** k you' twice, I never said that because otherwise, I'll take ten matches! But if we are eliminated, it's not the fault of the referee. "

The Italian midfielder, who we saw very angry in the minutes following the expulsion of Di Maria, collecting a yellow card in the 71st, was despite everything a good loser: "It's not the fault referee, he said.
We told ourselves that we should give everything.
We did it.
City also deserves.
