“It’s a distraught dressing room and a distraught manager. I don’t think the manager is in any fit state to talk to the referee about the decision. I think it speaks volumes that I am sat here and not the manager of this fantastic football club. We all saw and witnessed a decision that seemed very harsh. We had a massive audience around the world with people watching in how many countries I do not know, and everybody will be sitting there wondering what happened. A great performance was marred by one decision.”

My emotions have never been summed up so perfectly by a gifset.
