The real Madrid midfielder sent a small spade to Barcelona rivals over refereeing.
Elche received a penalty after Dani Carvajal fouled in the draw against the Real Madrid (1-1), while a penalty initially awarded to Zinedine Zidane’s side was canceled after consultation with VAR, but Casemiro did not want to discuss the refereeing after the match.
The Brazilian international clarified that this discussion does not interest him or his teammates. “We are not talking about the referees,” Casemiro told Movistar +. “They are here to do their best,” he said while with this result, Real dropped two precious points and let their neighbor Atlético slip away at the head of the League.
“Other people are here to talk about VAR. We are talking about football.” Words that certainly refer to Ronald Koeman. The Barça coach has often criticized the arbitration, which according to him favors Real Madrid this season.
Elche forced Real to share the points despite the big Merengue domination, especially in the first half and Casemiro expressed his disappointment at his team’s inability to reach their goal despite their many opportunities.
“We wanted to take the three points, but we did not succeed,” said Casemiro. “We started well and we had chances to score more goals, but with just one chance they scored a goal. “We fought, but it was difficult to find spaces. They all settled down in front of their defense, even though we knew we were going to face it. “
Zinedine Zidane also spoke about this meeting to the media at a press conference:
“My feeling is not good because we had chances and we did not kill the game,” said Zizou. “Then, with the draw, they regrouped behind and it was difficult. “I don’t think it was a matter of overconfidence because we knew we were playing. The key was to get that second goal, but we didn’t score it. Then they backed off and we couldn’t take the advantage, but we had opportunities too. I am satisfied with [Marcelo et Marco Asensio]. I’m happy with everyone’s performance, even those who play less. “
