Paris Saint-Germain manager, Thomas Tuchel, has reacted to the penalty given against them in the home soil on Wednesday that saw them crashed out of the Championship at the round of 16. The coach has called it cruel referring and has also blamed the VAR for the loss.
Tuchel’s side are out of the Champions League, after suffering a 3-1 loss at home to United, to bow out on away goals after a 3-3 aggregate draw.
But it took a contentious 94th-minute penalty to send United through, Marcus Rashford converting after a VAR review led to Presnel Kimpembe being penalised for a handball.
“It was a big decision, a cruel decision… but it’s difficult. There are reasons he can give the decision. It’s always soft facts with hands.
“The shot is not a big, big chance. It’s wide, then suddenly it’s a penalty,” Tuchel told a news conference.
