De Zerbi: 'Speechless'

Benevento Coach Roberto De Zerbi was furious with the referee after their last-gasp defeat to Cagliari. “I’m speechless.”

Le Streghe had by far the better of the game, but fell apart in the final 10 minutes, conceding a Leonardo Pavoletti header and Nicolo Barella penalty.

“It’s difficult to find the words. I am speechless,” De Zerbi said in his Press conference after the 2-1 home loss.

“We didn’t allow a shot on goal until stoppages and also hit the woodwork twice. We are trying our best to honour every game with dignity, but Leandro Castan should’ve been sent off for two bookable offences and if this penalty was given, then we should’ve had one for a similar situation in Florence.

“Today we surpassed the limits of patience. There is an attitude towards us from the officials that really grates.”
