Maurizio Sarri furious with refereeing

In addition to the damage caused by the comeback defeat, there was the mockery of the yellow card received by Sergej Milinkovic-Savic minutes after he entered the field: a penalty that will force the Serb, who was cautioned, to miss the derby with Roma and that sent Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri into a rage, who did not send his words against the refereeing staff in a press conference.

“I have no explanation for the card,” Sarri said in a press conference after the 1-3 win at the Stadio Olimpico. Milinkovic-Savic had the ball, he could not foul, let alone get a card. I have never seen anything like that in 50 years of soccer.”

“Did I talk to the referee? No, the fourth man told me he was watching the Var,” the biancoceleste coach later said, “That’s all I’m saying, if I talk I’ll get a six-month disqualification.
