Strama: 'Technology needed'

Udinese Coach Andrea Stramaccioni said “to make football credible we need to use technology.”

The debate is raging in Italy after contentious decisions in Juventus 3-2 Roma, while Udinese also protested at the last-gasp penalty for a 1-1 draw with Cesena.

“The incident in Udinese-Cesena leaves a bitter taste in the mouth, but we have to turn over a new leaf and work with the right hunger,” said Stramaccioni.

“In order to improve football and make it credible we need to use technology. It’s an important step forward.”

That result saw the Friulani drop from third place to fourth in Serie A, still a remarkable run of form.

“Physically we are in good shape and we improve as the game goes on, putting into practice the work we do in training during the week.

“We are forging a great mentality of hard work. The players know that training is just like a match.”
