Italian journalist Paolo Ziliani commented on the controversy surrounding the decision to not send off Bosnian midfielder Miralem Pjanic in the Derby d’Italia in April of 2018, in a post on his Twitter page, according to a report from Italian media outlet FcInterNews earlier today.

“For the record, Pjanic was already booked (and Orsato had sent off Vecino after 20 minutes after being spoken to by VAR). The vileness of Italian football never ends, despite the sewer uncovered by Calciopoli.”

Former head of the FIGC Prosecutor’s Office, Giuseppe Pecoraro, spoke to Naples based newspaper Il Mattino earlier today, discussing how he asked for the audio recording of the conversation between referee Daniele Orsato and the VAR team in regard to the decision to not give a second yellow card to Pjanic.

Pecoraro revealed that he didn’t receive any recordings until the start of last season, and the recording of the conversation between Orsato and VAR about the Pjanic situation was the only one missing.

The game was decisive in Juventus’ title winning campaign of the 2017/18 season, as the win put them four points ahead of rivals Napoli, who would go on to lose to Fiorentina the next day, essentially ending their title challenge.
