WHAT NEXT FOR BAYERN MUNICH'S CHIEF EXECUTIVE KARL-HEINZ RUMMENIGGE AFTER HIS SIDE WAS CRUSHED
After Bayern Munich's defeat by Real Madrid and their exit from Champions League on Tuesday night, all the talk in Germany is of the referee Viktor Kassai.
The Hungarian referee was slammed by both the Bayern players and the German press, after several borderline decisions appeared to favour Real Madrid's in extra time.
Arturo Vidal said: "Kassai is a 'clown' who had 'robbed' Bayern of victory, while Carlo Ancelotti insisted that the referee's performance had been 'significantly worse than ours'.
Bayern Munich failed to reach the semi finals for the first time since 2011
Bayern Munich complained of Arturo Vidal's second yellow card as unfair. That Casemiro should have been been sent off too. And that Cristiano Ronaldo's second goal should have been ruled out for offside. At the end of the day, however, it doesn't make a difference.
Real Madrid played well and they deserve their place in the semi-final. The reality is that, for the first time since 2011, Bayern won't be in the last four of the Champions League.
It is time for Bayern Munich's management board to look beyond refereeing decisions and stop blaming others and survey the bigger picture.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge dismissed Leicester City chances of wining the Champions League.
The German told Corriere dello Sport:”Spanish clubs have won the Champions League over the last three years.”
“I think that this season it will be more difficult because any team in the quarter-finals can win it, except from Leicester probably.”
“It’s hard to say who is the favourite now, Juve are very strong I’m not sure Barcelona will qualify.”
