Buffon Charged By UEFA

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon charged over referee comments

Juventus long-serving goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has been charged by Uefa over comments about referee Michael Oliver after their Champions League defeat by Real Madrid.

Buffon hit out at the English official after he awarded the 89th-minute penalty, converted by Cristiano Ronaldo, that enabled Real to seal a 4-3 aggregate victory.

Alongside the announcement regarding Buffon, UEFA also confirmed that Diego Simeone's four-match ban after being sent to the stands in Atletico Madrid's Europa League semi-final first leg against Arsenal has been upheld, despite an appeal from Los Rojiblancos.

"Clearly you can not have a heart in your chest, but a bag of rubbish".

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com did a report on Buffon's comments on Oliver where the shot stopper referred the England referee as an animal and "having a rubbish bin the heart should be".

The 40-year-old has been charged on two counts by European football's governing body for the incident and aftermath - Article 15 of UEFA Disciplinary Regulations for the red card itself, and under Article 11, for his actions afterwards, relating to "general principles of conduct".

The case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on May 31.

Oliver and his wife were then the target of abusive text and social media messages.

"I'm sure Oliver will have a great career in future, but he's too young to officiate a match like that", Buffon said.

Buffon is one of the game's most decorated players, with 176 caps for his country and multiple domestic Italian honours, as well as winning the World Cup in 2006.
