Michael Oliver moved family after famous Real Madrid – Juventus clash

Football News

Former referee Mark Clattenburg reveals that Michael Oliver had to transfer his family out of their home after Real Madrid-Juventus in 2018.

The official was targeted after awarding a last-gasp penalty to Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-final against Juventus in the 2017-18 season.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who was a Real Madrid player at the time, converted the spot-kick to enable the La Liga giants to qualify for the semi-finals.

Clattenburg has reported that the English official was pressured to drive his family out of their house after receiving death threats.

“Human referees are. In the heat of the moment, they make mistakes,” he wrote in a letter posted on Mail Online.

“I’ve made plenty of myself. But the line is there. With social media, sadly, the line is crossed all too often.”

After the game in which Juventus were knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid in 2018, Michael Oliver had to transfer his family out of their home.

It’s wrong, but the harassment Mike has faced will not end until the social media companies decide to give a damn.”
