Real Madrid midfielder Lucas Vazquez: Many envy us

Real Madrid midfielder Lucas Vazquez took aim at their critics after victory over Malaga.

Vazquez hit out at those unhappy seeing Real in the Champions League semifinals.

"It hurts people to see us in the semi finals eight years in a row," he admitted in his post-match interview.

"It creates envy with people that we have to learn to live with.

"Many people are happy about our misfortune."

The decision to award Los Blancos a late penalty against Juventus is still being talked about in both Italy and Spain, yet Vazquez fails to see the controversy.

"It was a penalty, that's clear," he intimated.

"People are giving so much attention to something that has already happened.

"The penalty is being discussed more in Spain than in Italy."
