Rossi: 'Juve deserved a penalty, but...'

Delio Rossi admits Juventus deserved a penalty, “but nobody notices when the same errors go against Palermo.”

Cesare Bovo blatantly handled the ball in the box during the 2-1 win over Juve this evening, but the referee waved play on.

“It was probably a penalty,” confessed the Coach. “However, when Juventus complain then it becomes a huge story in the papers.

“When exactly the same foul and spot-kick was denied to Palermo for Thiago Motta's handling offence on Sunday, nobody batted an eyelid.

“If we are to be shocked and indignant over a refereeing error, then we have to all do it consistently.”
