There is a lot to read after yesterday’s devastating loss. We won’t be judging if it’s not just coffee you are drinking this morning.

Arturo Vidal and James’ mother say what we all thought (The Mirror )

As our own Phillip Quinn brilliantly covered here, Bayern Munich fans were not the only ones clamoring for justice after an obvious handball on Real Madrid’s Marcelo was given the “three blind mice” treatment by the game’s officials.

Arturo Vidal has labelled the decision not to award Bayern Munich a penalty in their Champions League defeat by Real Madrid “criminal s***”. The Chilean played no part in his side’s 4-3 defeat by Los Blancos in the semi-final of the competition on Tuesday night due to injury, but was paying close attention to the action at home. The German giants dominated the reigning champions at the Bernabeu, but were unable to score the all-important goal that would have seen them go through. Bayern Munich were left even more frustrated by the fact they weren’t awarded a penalty for a Marcelo handball, which the Brazilian later admitted should have been given.

The non-call was laughable, pitiful, idiotic, stupid, etc...especially when you see the vantage point of the officials.

In addition, the mother of James Rodriguez, Pilar Rubio Gomez, voiced her frustration via Twitter.

And if it was not hand that it was? Very difficult so

Every time I see that repetition gives me a stone

We feel you...

Juan Bernat wants out of Munich (Twitter - SportBild via @Bayern_mania)

In what has been widely anticipated, back-up left back Juan Bernat is ready to move on from Bayern Munich as @Bayern_mania summarized from the print edition of SportBild.

Bernat has scuffled over the past two seasons and does not look ready to supplant David Alaba for a starting role. It is probably the next, logical step to find somewhere that he can play consistently.

Martial is not in Bayern’s plans on the wing for next season (Twitter - @cfbayern)

Per Christian Falk of SportBild, Bayern is hoping to go with Kingsley Coman, Serge Gnabry, Arjen Robben, and Franck Ribery on the wings next season. I’ve got no problem with that honestly.

As always, if Robben and Ribery can accept roles as mentors to the young wingers, this could be a very good situation for all. If not, and the veteran duo opt to leave Munich, Bayern will have some work to do on bolstering its corps of wings.

In typical Bayern fashion, “MiaSanMia.”
