Carlo Tavecchio: We must accept human error

FIGC president Carlo Tavecchio spoke today to Ansa regarding yesterday’s refereeing decisions:

“The human error of referee’s must be accepted. I call on all parties involved to tone it down. I want to extend an invitation to all those involved to lower their tones, we accept human error from the referees just like we do from coaches and players. I am convinced that our class of referees is among the best in the world.”
