Inter defender Stefan de Vrij believes that the penalty awarded to Juventus in the clash between the two sides at the San Siro was a harsh decision.

Speaking to InterTV after the match, the Dutchman gave the view that the contact was not worth a penalty being awarded based on having been close to the incident.

Inter’s Denzel Dumfries made contact with Juventus left-back Alex Sandro on the edge of the penalty area late in the match as the Bianconeri were searching for an equalizer.

The referee initially waved play on, but on the advice of the VAR went to look at the challenge again on the monitor, deciding that it was a penalty, and the Bianconeri scored to take a point from the ensuing spot kick.

The decision was not without controversy and the Inter players and staff protested, something which de Vrij echoes in his post-match comments where he suggested that there was no penalty to be seen.

“I was close to the action and it seemed to me that there was nothing,” he stated. “Too bad about how it ended, I don’t even know if it was in or outside the area. We worked a lot on the defending during the week, as in these last matches we had suffered a little too much. Today I believe that we have done well and that we have conceded little.”
