“But it is the referee’s decision, the VAR decision but it is difficult to understand it and difficult to accept it.

“With Thiago, it’s something I don’t want to talk about. It’s difficult for me to understand it, to accept it, so it’s better sometimes to be quiet and not talk about it,” he added during his postmatch press conference.
