Rosella Sensi in hot water after referee criticism

Roma president Rosella Sensi has been ordered to appear before an FIGC disciplinary panel to explain her comments towards referee Carmine Russo after the Giallorossi’s 2-1 defeat at Brescia on 22 September.
After a fiery encounter, in which the capital side were denied two penalties and Roma saw defender Philippe Mexes sent off for what looked liked a perfectly good tackle which Russo deemed to be illegal, subsequently awarding the home side a spot kick. A furious Sensi claimed that “the officials are blind, Russo’s display was damaging to the reputation of good referees and the federation”
After the game, Sensi headed a Roma witch-hunt to try to get the official suspended whilst further investigation took place. In a short statement on Corriere Dello Sport’s website, calcio’s governing body announced that the charge was for “casting doubt on the impartiality and good belief of the official”. A date for the hearing is not yet known. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
