Conti sarcastically told Corriere dello Sport: "I must compliment Jose Mourinho on how he has expanded the education of Balotelli, one sees that inside the kid's education is also simulation.
"Was it a penalty? It's a joke. If anyone has seen it, it was wrong. That's all."
Meanwhile, Roma skipper Francesco Totti, who missed the game due to a knee injury, said: "Here, as always, more than ever. I am literally speechless. I was in the stands and from there I have seen even more clearly that the penalty kick was not there."
