Zdenek Zeman has waded into the controversy between Juventus and referees, insisting “the only penalty was for the foul on Sebastian Giovinco.”
Antonio Conte and his men were furious after Wednesday’s 0-0 draw at the Stadio Tardini and claimed there were two spot-kicks not awarded in their favour, while Giovinco “had dived” in his incident.
“Conte is moaning, but in my view in that game the only penalty that should’ve been given was for the foul on Giovinco,” said Pescara Coach Zeman.
“I never made distinctions between big and small clubs. It is the media that do that. At least compared to the past we no longer see some teams receiving 20 penalties per season.”
Former Roma and Lazio boss Zeman has for many years been a vocal critic of Juventus.
