In the top ranks of the modern game. Clubs/Managers/Players and even fans are more than happy to walk off with the big shiney trophey if a member of their star studded team dives or feigns injury to get someone sent off.
What difference does it make if the referee was not quite being fair (and that might not be true, it could just have been a poor game by him)?
No. Sorry guys.
Wipe away those tears and wake up. The game at the top is rotten to the core. The vast majority of top Prem, La Liga,Siri A players would happily cheat to win.
Bitter pill for ANY club to swallow, but swallow it they must.
