Inter Legend Walter Zenga On Lazio’s Controversial Goal: “Correct To Play On, The Referee’s Decision”

Legendary former Inter keeper Walter Zenga believes that Lazio did not do anything wrong when they scored what proved to be the winning goal against the Nerazzurri despite Federico Dimarco appearing to be down injured.

Speaking to Italian news outlet Sky Sport Italia, the former keeper gave his views on the controversial incident and suggested that it was ultimately up to the referee whether or not to stop the game.

Inter players were visibly angry after Felipe Anderson scored the Biancocelesti’s second goal to go ahead for the first time at the Stadio Olimpico, complaining to the referee about the circumstances of the goal.

Nerazzurri defender Dimarco had gone down under a challenge and the referee waved play on for Inter to carry the ball forward, with the Biancocelesti scoring from a counter-attack started when goalkeeper Pepe Reina collected Lautaro Martinez’s shot.

Lazio played the ball past Dimarco who was still on the ground, something which the Nerazzurri players were clearly unhappy with, but Zenga believes that ultimately the Biancocelesti had no reason to put the ball out of play.

“If I score it, I celebrate. If I concede it, I get angry,” Zenga reflected. “But it is the referee who decides it, everything else is a consequence of the anger for the goal conceded. We should not put the ball out, and should continue playing.”
