AC Milan are not happy with the decisions that went against them during Tuesday night’s defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.
As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), Milan as a club feel they were clearly penalised by Cakir’s refereeing and intends to file a formal complaint with UEFA. Of course it cannot influence the end outcome of the game, but it is a way to put on record that the Rossoneri feel they were very hard done by.
The path to the knockout stages has now become tremendously complicated for Stefano Pioli’s men and it is all because of the red card and a non-existent penalty in the 93rd minute, which is hard for the team to take but also causes potential economic damage.
In addition to the income from potential qualification to the knockout rounds, there is also the money that every single point earned in the group stage brings. Milan therefore are willing to go all the way to prevent certain unpleasant situations from happening again in the future, while Cakir now risks being taken out of the rotations by UEFA.
