Inzaghi: 'Ref ruined it for Milan'

Pippo Inzaghi felt the referee ruined Milan’s 3-2 defeat to Sassuolo, which saw a phantom goal and two red cards.

“Of course your heads drop when you concede a goal that didn’t actually go in,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“The second goal might’ve been offside too, so it becomes difficult to react in those circumstances. The team did well to get back to 2-0, then the moment we had the game in hand, Bonaventura was sent off.

“His first booking was non-existent and the second was very dubious. When you’re down to 10 men for half an hour in 35 degree heat, it becomes difficult.

“I find it hard to even comment on a game like this. We should talk about football, but to be honest it’s not easy in these circumstances.

“There were two dubious incidents and both of them went against us. If Bonaventura had stayed on the pitch, it would’ve been a different game.

“Nonetheless, this is the attitude we have to show. We wanted to win today and unfortunately sometimes circumstances are out of your control.

“It is important for everyone here to keep hold of their place at Milan. I love to work and see my team grow, so I don’t want this season to end.

“I’d just like to have the chance to play these games with all 11 men on the field.”

There are reports Sassuolo are interested in signing Inzaghi as Coach for next season.

“I have a contract with Milan and I am honoured to be here. Sassuolo wanted me when I was in charge of the Primavera youth team, but I am tied to Milan and hope to stay, because I have a lot more to give.”
