Inzaghi angry at Acerbi red card in Napoli match
Lazio boss Simeone Inzaghi was left frustrated after Francesco Acerbi was given his marching orders in the 2-1 defeat to Napoli at the San Paolo stadium in Naples.
“Napoli played better than we did and certainly deserved to win, but having said that, on the first yellow card, Callejon was clever to get in front of Acerbi and then stop, ensuring the defender had to run into him,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia
“As for the second booking, he clearly got the ball and it was not even a foul. I noticed that, I got angry, but these incidents do keep happening to us.”…
“We went down to 10 men against Inter as well, although I had no complaints about the Senad Lulic second yellow. This evening, I didn’t agree with either of the two bookings for Acerbi. Inzaghi added
“As I said, Napoli didn’t steal anything, they deserved to win. They hit the woodwork four times, although the Jose Callejon chance was offside so wouldn’t have counted, and we went too deep for long periods.
“It’s going to be a fight to the end between many different teams for a place in Europe.”
