Hellas Verona’s Davide Faraoni: “I Messed Up For Inter’s Goal But My Equaliser Should Have Stood”

Davide Faraoni is still bitterly disappointed about his role in Hellas Verona’s defeat at Inter last Sunday.

Inter were made to work hard by Ivan Juric’s side but eventually secured a 1-0 win at San Siro, thanks to a late strike from super-sub Matteo Darmian.

Faraoni was caught out of position for the Nerazzurri’s winner before a goal of his own was controversially disallowed for a foul on Samir Handanovic.

Speaking to L’Arena on Friday (via FcInterNews.it), the former Inter full-back admitted: “Inter’s goal is still tattooed in my mind, not least because the ball went through my legs.

“Maybe I made a mistake, I should have taken up a wider position.”

Faraoni was then asked about his equaliser, which was ruled out by referee Rosario Abisso without consulting his pitch-side monitor.

“I think it should have stood and Abisso could have at least gone to VAR and looked at it again,” the 29-year-old argued.

“I’m not looking for arguments though; the referee made his decision and that’s fine, amen.”

Inter are within four points of the Serie A title courtesy of last weekend’s win, and they could be crowned champions as early as tomorrow with a helping hand from Sassuolo.

The Nerazzurri must beat Crotone tonight and then hope Roberto De Zerbi’s side can get a result when they host Atalanta tomorrow afternoon.

Faraoni made 18 appearances for Inter’s first-team as a youngster before leaving to join Udinese in 2012.
