FIFA president Gianni Infantino commented on controversial decisions made by Denis Aytekin, the referee appointed for Barcelona vs PSG clash (6-1).

“What you saw was an incredible match. This shows that football is really a fantastic game.” Infantino told reporters.

“Whether that particular case was an injustice or not, we can leave it to the judgement of the referee at this stage.”

“Video Assistant Referees (VAR) will be there in future, hopefully, to correct, clear mistakes of the referee. In this case I don’t know whether it was a clear mistake or not. But in future when there are clear mistakes this will be corrected,” FIFA president finalized.
