Atletico Madrid defender Felipe slams ref for Liverpool defeat: Griezmann never a red; we deserved penalty

Atletico Madrid defender Felipe Monteiro was left fuming after their Champions League defeat to Liverpool.

A red card for Antoine Griezmann and a late penalty call denied left Atletico furious with the match officials.

Felipe later said on Griezmann's red card: "It was a bit far away, I couldn't see the play because it caught me from behind, but I think it's yellow and that's it. Because he's looking at the ball and he's trying to control it and that's complicated. One less so long against Liverpool.

On the penalty denied, he also said: "For me it is clear, I do not know what the rule is. But he went to the VAR, he looked, he looked again and he was in doubt. For theirs, it was very fast."

Felipe also stated: "To whistle Hermoso's penalty it was very fast. For ours, he looked, looked, looked, came back, looked again ... A little bit of, I don't know if weight is missing ... The refereeing could have been a little more (in control)."
