Hiddink alleges: Chelsea vs Barcelona 2009 Champions League semi-final was ‘fixed’

first_img The Blues were denied a spot in the final after the official Tom Henning Ovrebo made a series of blunders. Hiddink, manager of Chelsea at the time, branded the officialdom as: “The worst refereeing I have ever seen.” He told Ziggo Sport: “The referee performance surprised me, because in the past he’d had perfect performances. Is it the worst refereeing I’ve ever seen? I think so.” The Dutchman alleged: “This is the only time I thought a match could’ve been fixed.” Hiddink claims football chiefs would not have wanted a repeat of the all-English final between Chelsea and United the year before, won by the Red Devils on spot-kicks. But in an interview with The Sun two years ago, Norwegian whistler Ovrebo admitted to making genuine mistakes during the match. Ovrebo, who works as a psychologist in Oslo now, turned down FOUR Blues’ penalty claims and Chelsea were cruelly eliminated by Andres Iniesta’s 94th-minute goal for Barca which put them through on the away goals rule. Loading… Death threats were made after the game by people claiming to be Chelsea fans, while straight after the match Blues striker Didier Drogba verbally attacked the ref, and later received a five-match ban. Ovrebo said: “I was happy with 95 per cent of my decisions. But there were some decisions that were not dealt with in the correct manner. “One handball earlier in the game should have been a penalty. People will always have different opinions about the game. “But everyone agrees the refereeing that night was not optimal. And I am the first to agree with them.” At the time Uefa dismissed the conspiracy theories around the game. read also:Chelsea announce Eddie Newton departure for Trabzonspor Uefa general secretary David Taylor said: “If anything it’s a media conspiracy against Uefa. “It does make me angry. It really annoys me because it’s a load of rubbish.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Guus Hiddink has claimed Chelsea’s 2009 Champions League semi-final defeat to Barcelona might have been fixed – even though the referee has owned up to making mistakes.
