Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has claimed that the German outfit deserved to reach the Champions League final this season.
Both sides missed a penalty in that match too, but Rummenigge suggested that referee Cuneyt Cakir was partially to blame for Bayern's exit from the competition.
"Our team played great. They deserved to win and deserved to go to Milan," Rummenigge is quoted as saying in Sport Bild.
"The Atletico goal was offside, the foul for the penalty was outside of the box. The referee had two matches in the last seven days.
"I don't know whether those UEFA guys can have too many matches, too. The UEFA delegate told me 'it's a shame what he did'."
Bayern have now suffered semi-final elimination at the hands of Spanish opposition in each of the last three seasons.
