Di Francesco laments referee decisions

first_imgAS Roma manager Eusebio Di Francesco believes that they were unfortunate with the decisions that were taken against them in their semi-final defeat to Liverpool in the Champions LeagueThe Giallorossi won the second leg at their Stadio Olimpico 4-2 on Wednesday night but were ultimately unable to overturn their three-goal deficit from the first leg this time around with Roma narrowly losing 7-6 on aggregate to Liverpool in what was their first semi-final appearance in the competition since 1984.But, while admitting that they made things difficult for themselves with the first goal, Di Francesco was left to ponder what might of happened had the match officials not made any “human errors” while wrongly ruling Edin Dzeko for offside and then later denying Roma a clear penalty when Trent Alexander-Arnold handled Stephan El Shaarawy’s shot in the box.“In the two games, Liverpool showed that they are a great team. In the second half, they were in a lot of difficulties. We complicated life for ourselves, especially with the first goal.” said the Italian, according to AS.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…On the possible penalty decision: “We’ll see on the television.

It’s been a long time since this team got this far. I want to always see my guys giving everything in the difficult moments like they have done.” added the Roma coach.last_img
