He was retired prior to the game, refereed one game where clearly UEFA didn’t want a fifth English team in champions league (a mess they created by changing the rules to allow the Kopites in when they where 5th at the time there was no rule that defending champions auto qualified) he then retired straight after. Not saying he is “Marcus Bent” but it’s unusual to say the least.
You can watch the replay there is no foul from Bent at all.
Also There is no way on earth he’d have given that decision if it was one of the “big clubs” Barcelona, Juventus, Madrid, Liverpool, Man Utd....
but like I say I’m not bitter
oh and We got Villa Real in the qualifier who finished in quarters while the kopites who didn’t qualify for champions league under the rules got to play a team of welsh postman and bank clerks
did I mention I’m not bitter about it
