Chelsea v Barcelona: Emma Hayes slams Champions League red card

Written by on April 27, 2024

Chelsea manager Emma Hayes said Kadeisha Buchanan’s red card in the semi-final defeat by Barcelona was the “worst decision in Women’s Champions League history”.

Buchanan was ordered off for a second yellow card offence as Chelsea were knocked out, losing 2-0 at Stamford Bridge for a 2-1 exit on aggregate.

Hayes said she thought her side – who also conceded a penalty – were “robbed” by referee Iuliana Demetrescu’s decisions.

Buchanan’s second booking came for a challenge on Patri Guijarro just before the hour mark.

“I didn’t think it was a foul, let alone a yellow card,” said Hayes.

Chelsea were 1-0 down to Aitana Bonmati’s first-half goal but level on aggregate when the red card came out, with the tie in the balance.

Fridolina Rolfo’s spot-kick in the 75th minute carried Barcelona through to the 25 May final.
