Never a penalty in a million years. If that penalty was given against us we’d be livid and rightly so. What does the referee expect defenders to do? Chop their arms off? That’s an example of a referee never playing football ever at any level. You can’t possibly move your arms when the ball is moving 70 mph. His arm wasn’t exactly in an unnatural position.  But the thing is I knew that penalty would be given as soon as it went to VAR because it’s Man Utd.

Penalty all day long for me. What level of football have you played at that makes you think it wasn’t out of interest ?

The decision to block with the arm is not taken in the moment between the player shooting and the defender jumping. It's made in training. Players learn to jump in a certain way (just as they learn to 'fall' in a certain way) - to make it look natural but in fact to make themselves bigger in order to block the ball. They have no intention of getting his arm out of the way, just to make it look like it needs to be there. Therefore, the intent is there. Therefore it's deliberate.

The duo allegedly clashed in the team's dressing room after the defeat - which knocked holders Real out of the Champions League, 5-3 on aggregate.

Newspapers AS, Marca, El Pais and ABC reported the apparent face-off, saying Perez threatened to sack Ramos in front of the whole squad.
