Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte reacted to the 2-0 loss to Real Madrid on matchday 4 of the Champions League.
Conte feels that referee Anthony Taylor killed the game by deciding to give Arturo Vidal a march order. The Chilean midfielder was not satisfied with the referee’s decision not to have given him a penalty when he was caught by Raphael Varane in the penalty area, something that did not interest the referee.
He was given a yellow card for his complaints and then handed another yellow card moments later and the English referee gave his marching orders.
“Honestly, do not talk about refereeing, although many times the referee must be smart and the game is like that,” began his post-match press conference at San Siro after the loss to Los Blancos.
“Unless Vidal says something serious, leaving a team with 10 men after just 30 minutes means killing the game, but I don’t know what Vidal told him.” The former coach of Juventus and the Italian team went on to share his thoughts on the Overall, Inter lost 2-0 on a penalty from Eden Hazard and a second-half goal from substitute Rodrygo. “It was not a question of fury, you have to understand the weight of certain parties.
It was a tough match from a strong point of view. “We play a lot against Real Madrid. It was a game in which we could not be wrong, there was no lack of fury. Maybe we’re a little too sorry. “Only time will help us to improve in these games and manage them better.”
Inter’s hope of reaching the Champions League knockout stage now looks weak and they have to win their next two matches against Borussia Monchengladbach and Shakhtar Donetsk and have some luck to advance.
