Cristiano Ronaldo slams referee for El Clasico defeat; 'lot of people' did not want Real Madrid to win

Cristiano Ronaldo blamed Barcelona’s thrilling 4-3 win over Real Madrid last night on the incompetence of match official Alberto Undiano.
The Real Madrid forward said: "The referee made some incredible decisions but we have to carry on," said Ronaldo. "In a Real Madrid-Barcelona game you have to have a referee who is up to the task," the 29-year-old added. "I don't want to use the referee as an excuse but if you analyse the 90 minutes there were a lot of mistakes."
Ronaldo even suggested that some people with influence, whom he did not identify by name, had wanted Real to lose and the referee had not been entirely objective. "Real Madrid is the greatest club and there is a lot of envy around it," he said. "It's tough because a lot of people did not want us to win and Barcelona to be out of the title race. They probably do not want Real to win this league. It makes me think that you don't only win matches on the pitch but also with a little bit of help from outside."

The referee made a game changing decision midway through the second half when he decided that Neymar had been fouled by Sergio Ramos and gave a penalty and a red card.

But, Ancelotti said: 'I have not had another look at the incidents so I cannot say if the referee’s decisions cost us the game. It is not something I have discussed with the players after the match.'
