Romairone: 'Both Milan goals invalid'

Chievo director Giancarlo Romairone claims both Milan goals should’ve been disallowed. “We’d like to lose because we’re bad, not for collateral damage.”

The 2-1 home defeat was sealed by a Lucas Biglia free kick and Krzysztof Piatek tap-in to finalise a chaotic move.

“It’s not possible that every week there’s a controversial incident with us,” Romairone told Sky Sport Italia.

“The wall was 13 metres away from the free kick rather than nine, while on the second goal there was both an offside and a foul."

Chievo were furious that the referee didn't even go to view the VAR footage himself on the second goal, where Piatek was accused of a foul - or at the very least dangerous play - in the build-up.

“I just ask that you let us lose our games naturally. We are tired of being guinea pigs for VAR. Every day we need to start from scratch, just let us lose on the field, if we must do.

“We’d like to lose because we’re bad, not for collateral damage.”
