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.

UEFA defends Roma VAR decisions

UEFA believes VAR made the right calls during Roma’s 3-1 defeat to Porto in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Porto were awarded an extra-time penalty after Alessandro Florenzi had tugged his opponent’s shirt in the box, before Roma were denied a spot-kick of their own, the referee controversially choosing not to consult the VAR.

De Rossi: 'Human error, not VAR'

Daniele De Rossi maintains Roma deserved a penalty against Porto in the Champions League. “It’s nothing to do with VAR, that is a human error.”

VAR was used to give Porto a spot-kick in extra time and win 3-1 on the night, 4-3 on aggregate, but official Cuneyt Cakir did not watch the footage back when Patrik Schick seemed to be tripped a few minutes later.

Giampaolo: 'I prefer to have VAR'

Marco Giampaolo admired the midfield work from Sampdoria to beat SPAL, but also stood up for VAR after protests.

Fabio Quagliarella scored the two goals at the Stadio Paolo Mazza in this 2-1 victory.

“After our early goals, it got a bit chaotic, as SPAL had to fight back and so shook off the shackles to play in a more open and attacking fashion,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

Marotta rues 'irreparable' damage

Beppe Marotta has hit out at the ‘irreparable’ damage done to Inter during their trip to Fiorentina on Sunday. “It’s the biggest mistake ever made by VAR.”

Inter’s 3-3 draw ended in controversy as both the referee and VAR agreed Danilo D’Ambrosio had handballed deep in stoppage time, despite the ball appearing to clearly hit the full-back’s chest, gifting Fiorentina a point.

“We suffered a lot of damage,” Marotta told Sport Mediaset.

VAR-temio Franchi fireworks

A hugely entertaining Fiorentina 3-3 Inter gave Giancarlo Rinaldi all the elements of a classic Serie A thriller: goals, controversy and chaos.

In Florence, as in the Marx Brothers’ A Night At The Opera, there was no sanity clause. A goal after 16 seconds lit the touchpaper on an evening of technological fireworks. There were so many reviews required that it felt like the final whistle might not sound until way after midnight. And, at the end of it all, who had any clue if the result was a fair one?
