Chelsea midfielder Ramires speaks of yellow card agony
Ramires, 25, is one of three Chelsea players who will miss the match-up with Bayern due to yellow-cards picked up against Barcelona.
In an interview, the Chelsea-man told the Sun on Sunday: "When I received the yellow card I felt like my whole world had just collapsed.
"I asked the referee to consult his assistant before he issued the card but he completely ignored me. It was very harsh and the consequences were terrible for me.
"But I had to find the mental strength to carry on even though I was hurting inside. I couldn’t let my team-mates down."
Ramires will miss the final despite playing an important role in their qualification for the Munich showpiece.
