The referee judged Buksa’s contact with Meret to be a foul, not validating the 1-1 for the rossoblu. Divided technicians
Controversial aftermath after Napoli’s 2-1 win at Genoa. Pandev’s 1-1 goal was discussed, which was canceled due to a contact between Meret and Buksa judged to be illegal by the Var. At that moment, Napoli were ahead 1-0 thanks to Fabian Ruiz’s goal. Genoa will then find a draw with Cambiaso, but in the end it will be Petagna who will bag the winning goal. Divided the protagonists on Pandev’s goal canceled.
“THEY STARTED LAUGHING”
On the one hand, Ballardini, who did not hide the bitterness for Marassi’s post-match defeat: “Genoa played a good game – he said to Dazn’s microphones – they played on par with Napoli, net of the episodes seen. I liked the performance, I’m satisfied, I saw a very solid team and an attitude that I always want to see after a bad start “. And on the goal disallowed: “I don’t think Pandev’s action is spoiled by a foul. Four or five Napoli players laughed, they were convinced that the goal was valid. In any case, I’m not interested in talking about mistakes. it also happens to players and coaches. I believe in good faith. Pandev should not be savored, when he is well he plays, while Cambiaso is the youngest of the squad and despite this he will remain with us “.
On the other hand Spalletti, whose interpretation of the goal canceled at Genoa is diametrically opposite to that of Ballardini: “Buksa’s foul is right since the ball was long and the player only sought contact with the goalkeeper. He goes there. only to disturb the goalkeeper’s exit. It’s a foul. He turns his back looking for contact. By now he has seen the ball that is very long. Meret loses the ball because it hits him. ” And on Petagna he comments: “He has a quality to envy, he is a ball on him and a close action in the penalty area. There is talk of his farewell, I asked him if he felt like playing in case of need and I he said to be calm. We will talk about his future, he must be master of his will. Naples among the seven? There are many pitfalls from below, just think of the intensity of Empoli yesterday in Turin “.
