Italian agent Oscar Damiani believes that Inter should have been given a penalty in the second half of their Coppa Italia win over AC Milan yesterday evening.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster 1 Station Radio, Damiani gave the view that the Nerazzurri thoroughly deserved their win, and also updated that his client Andrei Radu plans to leave Inter in the summer.
Inter wingback Matteo Darmian appealed for a penalty early on in the second half after Rossoneri wingback Theo Hernandez clattered into the back of him in the penalty area.
The incident came to nothing, though in the end had little relevance to the final result as the Nerazzurri won the match 3-0 anyway.
However, in the view of Damiani, it was still a foul in the area that should’ve been given as a penalty.
“There was an obvious penalty that the referee didn’t give,” he said, “the Nerazzurri completely deserved to win.”
He then called it “A harsh result, a one-goal difference would’ve been fairer, a 3-2 scoreline would’ve felt logical for a beautiful match full of emotions.”
“Inter have something more in this moment,”Damiani added, “though Milan are also having an excellent season.”
Damiani also spoke about the situation of Radu, who has hardly this season with captain Samir Handanovic still firmly first-choice in goal.
“Samir always performs at a high level,” the agent explained, “Radu will move to another team because at his age he can’t wait around for his chance. Handanovic saved well, nothing to say, but Inter were well organized in midfield.”
