This is how Rossoblù Sporting Director Nereo Bonato spoke after Salernitana-Cagliari. His is the only voice of the afternoon as far as the club is concerned.
"The 2-2 penalty penalizes us significantly, there is great regret. It cannot be a correct decision: I had the opportunity to attend the meeting between coaches, managers and the head of referees Rocchi, even on that occasion it was said that certain episodes should not be considered as a penalty. Such decisions go to affect weeks of work, sometimes entire seasons. Tonight we feel penalized and I want to bring before everyone the disappointment of the coach, the group and the entire Club for an off-field call that was not in line with what was the dynamic of the action. This is a heavy and penalizing decision for us, to see on the field certain decisions that contradict what is said in meetings makes one very angry."
"The team responded on the field after a series of negative results, I did not have the slightest doubt about this group, we know we have fertile ground to work on. We were facing two teams in difficulty, we made a few mistakes, such as on the 1-1, but on the final draw weighs so much that kind of decision of the referee and VAR, which generates considerable bitterness preventing us from rejoicing in the return to victory. Today, however, we put a first brick in place to continue building the climb in the standings, the team expressed itself with speed and intelligence both in the first half and in the second half. The match strategy was right, the field proved it, until the VAR call: today unfortunately the judgment on the performance is marred by what happened at the referee level."
