Gianluigi Buffon has said his UEFA Champions League red card against Real Madrid last season “remains an injustice” and that he “suffered in silence” while serving his three-match ban.

Buffon was sent off in the final minutes of Juventus‘ quarter-final against Real Madrid after he furiously protested referee Michael Oliver’s award of a penalty to Los Blancos. While the Italian is now with Paris Saint-Germain, he is evidently not over the red card.
