Cana laments Onazi's sending off

Lazio defender Lorik Cana has admitted that their Europa League quarter-final against Fenerbahce changed after Ogenyi Onazi's sending off.

The Nigerian centre-back was given a second yellow after only 47 minutes in Istanbul on Thursday evening.

And the Albanian has conceded that going down to 10 men, as well as the awarding of a controversial penalty to the Turkish team, contributed to the 2-0 loss.

“After the sending off of Onazi, it was the start of another game,” he told Mediaset. “They pushed a lot more and we defended ourselves.

“We did quite well, but then there goal came from a penalty – and that seemed a little harsh.

“With good spirit we can reverse the situation.”
