Juventus boss Del Neri blames ref for Catania comeback

Juventus coach Gigi del Neri blamed the ref for Catania's comeback in yesterday's 2-2 draw.

Juventus coach Gigi del Neri blamed the ref for Catania's comeback in yesterday's 2-2 draw.

Alessandro Del Piero’s brace had put them 2-0 up before half-time, but with the last kick of the game Francesco Lodi curled in the equaliser.

There was anger in the Juve camp, as that free kick had been pushed forward after another set play was charged down in the wall.

“Paolo Bergonzi really messed it up with that free kick decision. Felipe Melo can’t chop his arm off,” blasted Del Neri.

“We are penalised by situations on the field and there were six big mistakes. Catania did well, but we must point out the referee did not have a good game. He was inconsistent in his evaluations.

“This is a strange season in which we pay a heavy price for everything that happens. We must increase our concentration.

“A Serie A team cannot waste such clear counter-attacks or goals that are already set up for you.”
