Borussia Monchengladbach manager Marco Rose has shared his belief that the third goal that they scored versus Inter last night should not have been chopped off for offside.
Gladbach scored what appeared to be a late equaliser in the match at Borussia Park but upon examining the footage on VAR, referee Danny Makkelie decided to rule out the goal due to Breel Embolo being offside.
As a result of the goal being ruled out, the score went back to 3-2 to Inter and in the final minutes of the game the Bundesliga club were unable to equalise again and lost.
“We are really disappointed because we were close again to getting a good result, which we would have deserved. I think we played better than we did in Milan, so we are taking steps forward,” Rose explained in an interview with Borussia Monchengladbach’s official club website following the penultimate group stage match of the 2020/21 Champions League group stage campaign.
The 44-year-old German manager, who has been in charge of Borussia Monchengladbach since 2018, also praised Inter for how they defended and spoke on two decisions that went against them, including the goal that was ruled out.
“Inter defended well though, didn’t allow us many chances and showed their individual quality in the decisive moments going forward.
“Two 50-50 decisions went against us too. There was arguably a foul on Marcus Thuram before their second goal I don’t think Breel Embolo was in an offside position for Alassane Plea’s equaliser as he wasn’t in the goalkeeper’s eye line. We can’t change that though. Now we just need to get the job done in Madrid.”
