Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba insists they did not deserve defeat at Champions League opponents Real Madrid.

Pogba felt Giorgio Chiellini's red card was a harsh decision.

“It was clearly not a red card offence. The referee made this decision, so we can’t do anything about it now,” the French midfielder told Sky Sport Italia after the 2-1 defeat.

“We are sad about this, as it was tougher to play with 10 men. We had a good first half and I think we could’ve earned a draw here, but when going down to 10 it was more difficult.

“We knew that we had to stay compact and go on the counter-attack, which we did very well.”
