Vinicius Jnr claims referee Daniele Orsato was biased towards Manchester City in their Champions League clash at the Bernabeu.

Vinicius wasn’t pleased with the level of officiating in his side’s defeat to Manchester City.

Real Madrid took the lead through Isco but were outdone by two second half goals within five minutes by Manchester City.

To make things worse, Ramos was given a red card late on and will now miss the second leg at the Etihad.

Vinicius claims Jesus fouled Ramos in the build-up to the equalizer and referees take the jury out on them because of their recent success.

The Brazilian teenager said via The Daily Star: “Everyone knows it is a foul. He (Jesus) did the same as I had done on (Riyad) Mahrez in the first half.

“He (Orsato) has the VAR, but he didn’t look at it. They always blow against us. It’s the same in every game. Always, always, they always come here and blow against us.

“It was a foul, definitely. Every game, they blow the same way (against us). It’s not normal.

“We didn’t collapse physically. Gabriel Jesus commits a foul on the first goal.

“We’re the best team, with the most league titles, the most Champions League titles, so it is always going to be like that.”

Vinicius and his teammates now have a pretty difficult task on their hands on the 17th of March when they face City at the Etihad.
