Udinese furious over penalty to Lazio

Udinese technical area manager Pierpaolo Marino is furious over the penalty that awarded Lazio the win in today’s last match of the 35th day of Serie A and at DAZN microphones bluntly accuses Ciro Immobile of simulation.

“We are angry, infuriated. A match that was in the balance was settled by a penalty kick. We are still at the stage where the referee and Var can’t see a simulation. A penalty was awarded that does not exist in the rules, and we are sorry that no one was able to correct a glaring error. We did not like the match from a refereeing point of view and we hope that this will not happen to us or others again, especially in times of Var. Immobile in simulating goes to dive on the opponent, but Masina had not touched him before the fall because the contact is slight. Then the usual things happen at halftime by the bench staff and in the second half the refereeing direction went one way. If there was any conditioning? At halftime the referee went toward the Lazio dressing room to argue with people who openly criticized him, this is a boorish habit of the staff and I did not like it at all. The impression remains that he ended up conditioning Pairetto, I said that to him as my critical judgment as well.”
