Gilardino anger at the missing penalty in Inter-Genoa: “Why doesn't the referee listen to the VAR?”

Gilardino does not snap or attack the match director on live TV. But that image buzzes in his head, leaves a lump in his throat and the conviction that he has been defrauded. “There must be communication with the VAR and great willingness to listen to it”

Alberto Gilardino does not raise his voice, he presents himself in a composed manner on live TV for interviews. His Genoa did not disfigure at all against Inter . Indeed, he demonstrated courage, vitality, organisation, precise tactical identity, enough personality not to be stunned even by the one-two that the Nerazzurri placed in the first half.

The Griffin never gives up, he clings to his certainties. Slowly he finds his way to the goal, closes the gap, almost equalizes (but Vitinha starts in an offside position), keeps Simone Inzaghi's team on edge until the conclusion. In the end the Ligurian rossoblù leave the Meazza with their heads held high but with great bitterness and the same awareness that achieving a draw would have been a fair result overall.

What made the difference and shifted the balance in favor of Inter was that penalty foul on Barella which didn't convince anyone. Frendrup's entry on the midfielder appears to be “a very normal game clash” (Marelli's words to Dazn) which does not affect the opponent's action at all (who moreover had already shot, as can be seen from the extended leg).

“From the pitch it didn't seem like a penalty – admits Gilardino to the microphones of Sky and then also to those of Dazn -. A feeling that was confirmed even later… looking at the images one is certain that there was no foul. I realize that these are moments and situations that need to be evaluated in a short time. But a very doubtful penalty remains… Having said that, I don't want to start a controversy but I prefer to talk about the performance of my boys, who played with courage and who had a good second half “.

Gilardino does not snap or attack the referee. But that image buzzes in his head, leaves a lump in his throat and the conviction that he has been defrauded. If that episode hadn't happened, who knows how the match against Inter would have gone. Maybe it wouldn't have ended 2-1.

“There is regret, because incidents can influence the progress of the match – adds the former striker, now coach of Grifone -. My regret is that in the first half we could have been more lucid against an opponent who has great qualities and is a solid team” .

The tongue beats where the tooth hurts and the comment is dedicated to the race director's bad evening. Gilardino's reflection leaves a question unanswered which is impossible to answer. The only one who can do it is Ayroldi. “There must be communication with the VAR and great willingness to listen to it, it's fundamental. Since they put it in place, why not do it? But they're human, they can make mistakes.”
