In today’s print edition, Italian daily newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport have analysed the performance of referee Luca Pairetto in last night’s match between Inter and Bologna at San Siro.
The Milan based news outlet admit to being unconvinced by Pairetto’s efforts in the match which Bologna surprisingly won 2-1.
Pairetto dished out two red cards during the course of the match. The first red he issued was to Bologna midfielder Roberto Soriano. Soriano reacted to a foul being given against him by shouting ‘you are poor’ at the direction of Pairetto who excessively handed him a red card. A stern talking to and a yellow card would have sufficed in this situation.
The second red card was handed to Inter defender Alessandro Bastoni who received a second booking but Gazzetta dello Sport are not convinced that the young Italian deserved a booking.
Whilst not convinced by his decisions to issue red cards, Gazzetta dello Sport do praise Pairetto for correctly awarding Inter a penalty after Mitchell Dijks fouled Antonio Candreva.
