Danny Makkelie, one of the trusted referees of the UEFA, was the involuntary center of attention of the semifinal of Champions that they disputed this tuesday Real Madrid Y Chelsea, two of the founders of the European Super League, after the earthquake of this controversial project and the constant threats from the president of the highest European football organization, the Slovenian Aleksander ceferin, especially towards the white club.
Any failure of Makkelie that would have harmed the entity that presides Florentino Pérez would have been interpreted as a retaliation from UEFA, and more so after the three scandalous penalties that stole the Barça, another of the great promoters of the Superliga, in the semifinal of the Female champions against PSG, the club that presides Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and one of the best partners of Ceferin.
However, Makkelie, a policeman by profession and the son of a marine, not only did not harm Real Madrid but also gave him a hand with ‘home’ arbitration. In the goal of Karim Benzema there was a clear prior lack of Casemiro by leaning on Azpilicueta, so the French forward’s goal should not have gone up on the scoreboard.
Makkelie, who had thousands of eyes on him, suffered the extra pressure of leading a game to the Real Madrid in very special circumstances. The Dutchman, who was not successful in the disciplinary section, showing very benevolent with Casemiro and Marcelo, made a serious mistake by not canceling the 1-1 that ended the unfounded fears of many meringues fans who feared an anti-home referee after hearing the threatening speech of Ceferin, a guy who is not the Mother Teresa of Calcutta but neither does the devil, although he has not stopped throwing ‘fire’ from his mouth after the failed ‘mutiny’ of 12 of the greats of Europe.
Surely Chelsea’s draw caused a smile in Ceferin after watching the game on television from home. The Slovenian leader, who has been lenient towards English clubs for the ‘Super League case’, is aware that the whole of the Russian billionaire Roman abramovich can save you the ‘drink’ of seeing the Real Madrid the next May 29 at the end of istanbul and thus end the morbid possibility of having to deliver the ‘Orejona’ to the whites if they proclaimed themselves European champions for the fourteenth time in their history.
The Chelsea It is closer than the whites to the final, due to the double value of the goals in the opposite half, but there is still the return in Stamford Bridge and anything can happen. With The league more and more uphill for those of Zidane, the Champions League is the burning nail that this Madrid clings to so as not to close the year in ‘white’. This really should give Real Madrid fans more fear than the ‘evil’ Ceferin.
