Torino coach Mazzarri: We had to beat ref and Frosinone

Torino coach Walter Mazzarri says they beat the match officials along with Frosinone last night.

The Granata blew a two goal lead before Alex Berenguer's goal gave them a crucial three points.

“I'm tired of losing points, I can say that now we've won," Mazzarri fumed on Sky Italia.

“The referees are affecting the results and they were trying again today because it was a foul on Sirigu for 2-1.

“We have our flaws, we don't close games out, but the moment has come to say something. Iago Falque, against Roma, had taken a position where he got a little touch which is technically a penalty.

“Today Sirigu was catching the ball and was prevented from playing it. It's not the first time, it's a continuation.

“When we're constantly trampled on I get tired, it deserves more attention. Today we won, even in a match that was up for discussion.

“Is there a campaign against Torino? I don't know. I see ugly, strange attitudes. A fourth official that cannot speak."
