Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini blasts the match officials in his side's clash with Borussia Dortmund following their exit from the Champions League.
Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini has blasted the match officials following his side's Champions League defeat to Borussia Dortmund.
The Spanish side looked to be heading for the last four of the competition but late goals from Marco Reus and Felipe Santana sent Dortmund through with a 3-2 aggregate victory in the quarter-finals.
However, replays have suggested that Santana was in an offside position when he scored.
"They did not want us in the semi-finals," Pellegrini said in his press conference. "After it went 2-1 for us, there were so many refereeing mistakes.
"The third goal was a hammer blow for us. There were two dismissals, and there was also their offside in the act of making it 3-2.
"In the final 10 minutes, we were so impaired [by the officials]. In such conditions, everything becomes very difficult."
Malaga president Abdullah Bin Nasser Al Thani stated on his Twitter page that his side were the victims of "racism" in the game.
