Claudio Ranieri’s words after the draw with Lecce


Claudio Ranieri, Cagliari coach, analyzed the draw with Lecce to the microphones of Sky Sport, recriminating for Gaetano's ejection: "My caution makes me laugh. To me it didn&#39t even look like a foul on Gaetano&#39s part. The referee had made a correct decision, then è he was called back to VAR and the subsequent ejection è was a logical consequence".

"I was even doubtful about the intervention, then I reviewed the images and è it was obvious that Gaetano did everything to retract his foot and to catch the ball so as not to hit their footballer – added the helmsman of the Rossoblù -. Between giving and not giving the direct red there'è a gulf. Too bad, too bad indeed. We were doing well, we had taken the lead. Then Lecce tied it and, in the final, could have even overturned it".

"I am always of the opinion that, when you can't win it, the important thing is not to lose,” he then stressed.

Let's keep this point and prepare as best we can for the final three matches that will determine our future.

Lecce, on the other hand, is not fighting with us. It was alreadyà out of the fray before this direct clash".

"The goal canceled? Come on, thatì is fine. Let us think about the next match, hoping we can achieve the season goal for which we have been fighting since the beginning of the championship by putting in great commitment and attachment" concluded Ranieri.
