Inter Milan GM Marotta angry over Perisic pen denial

Inter Milan GM Beppe Marotta hit out after they were denied a penalty during their 2-2 draw with Parma.

Ivan Perisic appeared to be hauled down by Parma defender Norbert Balogh, but VAR did not intervene.

Afterwards, Marotta said: “The coach will talk about the game. This is not to seek an alibi, because that is not our style, and if you don't put the ball in the net, you risk losing or drawing.

“Having said that, it is our duty also to protest at the refereeing decisions. This is our only venue for protesting, as we have no other way of making our voices heard.

“We realise VAR only intervenes with a clear and obvious error, but today there was a clear and obvious penalty. So either the referee pays closer attention or VAR must be used.

“If VAR is only partially used, then that damages everyone and creates a sense of inequality. After six games, it is only right to make this comment."
