Petrachi: 'Absurd disallowed goal!'

Roma director of sport Gianluca Petrachi was furious with the referee after a last-gasp goal against Cagliari was disallowed. “It’s absurd! In England, they’ll laugh at us.”

The game ended 1-1, but in stoppages Nikola Kalinic bundled the ball over the line after he had pushed Fabio Pisacane into goalkeeper Robin Olsen.

The referee disallowed the goal on the spot, but Roma didn’t realise this until after Pisacane had been stretchered off with a neck-brace.

Petrachi: Roma no feeder club!

Gianluca Petrachi believes Roma’s work in the transfer market over the summer proves they are not ‘a feeder club for anyone’.

Kostas Manolas and Stephan El Shaarawy were the only starters to leave Roma as they managed to convince Edin Dzeko into not only knocking back interest from Inter but also signing a new contract.

“Mkhitaryan preferred Roma over a few more million, knowing he was choosing a club who best suited his sporting needs,” Petrachi said at Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s official unveiling.
