Gianluca Rocchi on Juventus – Roma

The Italian referee, currently in the eye of the hurricane for his performance during the match in Turin, spoke to Il Processo del Lunedì. Here are his words:

“I’ve made mistakes in Juventus-Roma, I’ve created tension between the two teams. I didn’t manage the Maicon situation properly: my lack of equilibrium generated that turmoil.”

“After re-watching the game, as I always do, my most harsh critic was about that first penalty. This led to animosity and tension between the players and me, I think that episode was the key aspect that influenced the game”
