Udinese convinced top four hopes sabotaged by poor refereeing

Udinese patron Giampaolo Pozzo is convinced their top four hopes are being threatened by poor refereeing.

The Friulani are locked in a battle for Champions League qualification and have been very critical of officials recently.

"The numbers against us are frightening," blasted club owner Pozzo in the Gazzetta dello Sport.

"When we won 4-0 in Cagliari, we gave away seven free kicks. How have we suddenly become allegedly violent players?

"The mistake that most irritated me was disallowing Kwadwo Asamoah's goal at the 92nd minute of Udinese-Roma.

"Amauri's two offside goals for Parma were human error, but Gokhan Inler's red card seemed to be a referee prepared to punish. He did not attack the official. He said he didn't offend anyone and I believe him."
