In today’s print edition, Corriere dello Sport have examined some of the big decisions that referee Gianluca Manganiello made during yesterday’s 1-1 draw between Inter and Cagliari.

Manganiello was correct not to disallow Lautaro Martinez’s goal for Inter on the 28th minute. The Cagliari players protested after the goal claiming Lautaro had shoved their teammate but there was no push and therefore the goal rightly stood.

He was also correct not to bring out a red card when Romelu Lukaku went in on Luca Pellegrini. Whilst a dangerous tackle, as he jumped in to it, Lukaku kept his feet low to the ground and that is what saved him from getting a red card.

Manganiello was however wrong to not award Inter a penalty when Ashley Young was knocked down in the box. Christian Oliva clearly had no intention of going for the ball and instead went for Young meaning it should have been a penalty to Inter.

The final big decision Manganiello made was the sending off of Lautaro Martinez right at the end of the game and in the eyes of Corriere dello Sport, he was right to do so. Manganiello could not have done anything other than send him off after his excessive protesting at being booked.
