Atletico Madrid scoff at Real Madrid Hernandez Hernandez complaints

Atletico Madrid have taken aim at Real Madrid complaints after Sunday's 1-1 draw.

There has been a huge debate over Alejandro Hernandez Hernandez's decision not to award Real Madrid a penalty in Sunday's Madrid derby for a potential handball and Atletico Madrid have officially joined the discussion.

Emilio Butragueno, Real Madrid's director of institutional relations, criticised the referee's decision to stick with his original call even after looking at the VAR monitor, and several other prominent Real Madrid fans have hit out at the official as well.

Atletico Madrid believe that the decision was the correct one. They think it was an involuntary handball by Felipe and now they've hit back.

"They even criticise the correct calls..." a tweet posted on Monday afternoon started.

"Some are used to always having the wind in their favor."
