Lazio call press silence

Lazio have called a press silence after the chaotic end to their 2-0 defeat to Udinese, as they claim the second goal should’ve been disallowed.

The Biancocelesti were utterly furious when Roberto Pereyra netted in the final seconds of stoppages with goalkeeper Federico Marchetti jogging back to his goal.

This is because three whistles were heard from the crowd and some players thought it was the referee calling an end to the match.

Pereyra continued playing and scored into an empty net, prompting five minutes of furious protests, pushing and shoving on the touchline.

Lazio have declared a press silence, as they thought the referee should’ve halted play and given a toss-up because the game was affected by an outside force.

Andre Dias was sent off for dissent, but Marchetti was spotted shoving the referee, while Lionel Scaloni and Francelino Matuzalem also risk punishment for their actions.
