Juventus GM Marotta shrugs off referee errors

Juventus GM Beppe Marotta has played down the refereeing errors during defeat to Inter Milan.

Juve lost 3-1, though received some favourable decisions from the match officials.

"There is so much bitterness for losing to a direct rival like Inter, but we have already closed that chapter," he began, in reflecting on his side's 49-League game unbeaten run coming to an end.

"The refereeing errors? They are a component of the game, they have been and they continue to be, even the greatest referees commit errors.

"The difference is that now you can dissect every detail on the television. First you have to exclude any possibility of bad faith, because in the long run the episodes in favour and against balance out in some way."
