Genoa president Preziosi drops mafia hint after Roma defeat

Genoa President Enrico Preziosi was unimpressed by the manner of their 1-0 defeat to AS Roma.

The match saw Mattia Perin sent off and a last-gasp Rincon equaliser correctly ruled offside.

"A team with 10 men held out against Roma to the end, but that incident penalised us," Preziosi told reporters.

"I am disappointed by the arrogance of certain referees. Banti is a real curse for us and is incapable of handling a difficult game.

"It's difficult to beat Roma when you're down to 10 men, but I know that this decision was very dubious.

"There are too many things happening in Rome at the moment and I'd hate for football to be involved too."
