Italian Media Criticise Referee Mauro Piccinini For Performance In Inter’s Draw Against Parma

A report from today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport has criticised the performance of Italian referee Marco Piccinini in Inter’s painful 2-2 draw against Parma yesterday.

The report details how the Milanese club deserved a penalty in the second half of the game, when they were 2-1 down, after Croatian forward Ivan Perisic was fouled in the penalty area by Hungarian defender Botond Balogh.

Piccinini, who had a clear view of the incident, waved away the protests and booked Italian defender Andrea Ranocchia for his complaints.

Italian referee Fabio Maresca, who was in charge of the VAR room, was also criticised for failing to intervene, despite the incident being clearly contentious.

There were also doubts regarding a possible penalty for Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal, again heavily tackled by Balogh, but this situation is clearly less obvious than the Perisic incident.

The incident has caused many in Italy to complain about the usage of VAR this season.
