Benitez: "The match was influenced by an event that cannot be considered a fair football decision"

Notizie | 22/03/2015

The technical manager: "After having managed more than 600 matches, maybe it would be better to have eight referees"

“Maybe six referees are not enough it should be better to have eight indeed, some decisions could not be explained otherwise". Rafa Benitez is ironical in order to soften a bitterness that he cannot hide while he is talking about the game. The goal Atalanta’s gaol was converted on Pinilla’s clear foul. The technical manager is extremely brief, if not terse reading a m unmpaired match:
“We had 8 clear chances, next they had the chance to convert their opening goal that I cannot understand how it could have been considered fair. Obviously, I reiterate it was difficult to be detected by 6 referees, I hope they will chose eight ones for the next challenge, maybe it will be better”.

"There is nothing to say about the game. We didn't won, we are ten challnges to go yet, but I do not want to speak of the final rankings, I just want to repeat that the foul suffered by Henrique was not promtly detected. I am convinced that the referee, the linesman and the fourth official saw the fouI. This is my match's comments"

About the expulsion at the end of the match: "I have never being cautioned by a yellow card in my career as a manager and I cannot explain how they could have ruled me out for misunderstanding. After having managed more than 600 matches, I have never being shown a yellow card, If I get angry there is a fair reason. Tonight's match result was influenced by an event that cannot be considered a fair football decision".
