Marotta furious with referee Rizzoli

Juventus Sporting Director Beppe Marotta was left fuming after Saturday evening’s 1-1 draw with Roma in Turin.
Speaking to the Corriere Dello Sport, Marotta aimed all of his ire in the direction of match referee Nicola Rizzoli stating that: “we are unhappy, I speak on behalf of all of the club’s directors when I say that we dispute the some of the values shown by the officials”.
The main controversy happened right on the stroke of half-time when Roma were awarded a highly contentious penalty for a handball given against Simone Pepe. Marotta explained that: “the ball hit his shoulder, not his arm. We feel that this penalty was given as compensation for earlier in the half when Rizzoli declined another penalty claim when (Philippe) Mexes was fouled by Giorgio Chiellini”. It seems this story is set to run and run. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
