Ex Turkish ref claims Champions League draw rigged

  1. A former Turkish referee has accused UEFA of fixing the Champions League and Europa League quarter-final draws in a bid to keep Europe's biggest clubs apart.
    Ahmet Cakar, who officiated in the Champions League and at the 1996 European Championships, has built a reputation as one of Turkey's most controversial football pundits since he retired from refereeing.
    And he lived up to that billing when making the remarkable claim on Turkish station Beyaz TV that a combination of levers and vibrating balls had been used to ensure Barcelona and Real Madrid were kept apart in the draw at UEFA's headquarters in Nyon last Friday.
    "UEFA manipulated the draw for both the Champions League and Europa League," Cakar said, before detailing his theory that those carrying out the draw - former Madrid midfielder Steve McManaman and ex-Barca striker Patrick Kluivert - were made to carry metal objects that sensed vibrations in the balls being selected.
    Real Madrid were drawn against Turkish giants Galatasaray, while Barcelona will face PSG, with Bayern Munich taking on Juventus and Malaga meeting Borussia Dortmund.
    In December, the draw for the Champions League last-16 came up with exactly the same line-up of fixtures as in the practice draw earlier in the day, with the odds of that happening thought to be one in two million.

    Pretty crazy shit
     
  2. Madrid vs Galatasaray
    off course it's rigged :troll:
     
  3. "In December, the draw for the Champions League last-16 came up with exactly the same line-up of fixtures as in the practice draw earlier in the day, with the odds of that happening thought to be one in two million."

    Definitely fixed.
     
  4. I'm sceptical. It could have been a fluke coincidence and that this referee -- like most Turkish referees -- is moronic. If the Champions League was fixed then Real Madrid wouldn't have faced Manchester United in the last 16 draw.
     
  5. They ref got all right and in the same order. He did the same with the UEFA league .

    Wouldnt it be a little bit suspicious if the biggest teams always face the small teams?
    It makes fucking sense. Barca and Madrid faced each other 2 years ago so better keep that for the final. Bayern faced Madrid last year so the same .
    Borussia will pass and Madrid will as well,they already faced each other on the group stuff and Dortmund owned Real so yeah.it makes sense
     
  6. A barca fan complaining about us being drawn against Galatasaray! hmm interesting.

    Lets see:
    Group stage: Real Madrid, Man City, Dortmund and Ajax.
    Round of 16: Real Madrid VS Man U.

    Which teams did Barca draw in these rounds again?!

    The 2 rapes we gave you a month ago obviously had their effect on you.
