AS Roma coach Claudio Ranieri was furious over the manner of their defeat to Brescia.

Roma were defeated 2-1 by a controversial penalty that saw Philippe Mexes sent off and were denied several spot-kicks.

“Everyone saw that the team did everything it could, but unfortunately it was marked by the decisions of the referee. Their penalty was non-existent and we should’ve had at least two spot-kicks,” said the Coach.

“How can you give a corner for a challenge on Matteo Brighi? Plus whoever was marking Marco Borriello didn’t even look at the ball, he just dragged him down.

“The lads honestly did not deserve to lose. It was one of those bad days. We made some fouls in the first 20 minutes and got three yellow cards, fine, but then the same method wasn’t applied to Brescia.

“We all saw the handling offence from the touchline and the officials didn’t? It is clear, so visible.

“I am curious to know if the linesman gave the penalty. The referee was blocked off from seeing it clearly, but if the linesman gave it then he ought to be hospitalised for tests on his eyesight. He can’t see anything!”
