With Inter (3–0) largely knocked out in the semi-finals of the Italian Cup, AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli flew into a rage after the match, condemning the controversial cancellation of a goal.
Tuesday evening is bad for AC Milan. In their return to the semi-finals of the Italian Cup, Rossoneri swept to Inter (3–0), which they had hung on the first leg (0–0). The elimination angered coach Stefano Pioli, who admitted that it recognized good opposing play but expressed regret at the referee’s level. Notably, Ismail Benesar’s canceled goal in the second half took him out of his hinges and quickly ended a question-and-answer session with the press.
Back in the 69th minute. After a corner scuffle, the ball landed at Benesar’s feet, whose shot went through a group of players into the net. Leading 2-0 but dangerous for a few minutes, AC Milan then looked to get back into the game. But the referee appeals for video arbitration and decides to rule out a goal for an offside by Pierre Kalulu. Certainly the defenders’ overhead, the Frenchman did not touch the ball and did not particularly bother the opposing goalkeeper.
“Name a Goalkeeper Who Won’t Respond”
“Look at the reaction of Samir Handanovic (Inter goalkeeper, editor’s note). He’s not even complaining, upset Pioli while watching the replays. Name me a goalkeeper who won’t react after taking a goal.” Was. Instead, he is doing nothing. Inter players complained about just one handball which didn’t even happen. Come on, let’s go…” said the Italian technician, still annoyed, leaving the reporters, who could not ask further questions.
Prior to this, he nevertheless took the time to recognize that “even if the performance was not worth 3–0, Inter scored at the right time”. “Obviously coming back to 2-1 would have given a different game, we would have had the pace, so it’s difficult, he said sorry. When you concede three goals, it means the opponent played better and we made mistakes. Of.” If he is no longer able to achieve the double, he can console himself by looking at the Serie A standings, where AC Milan are still two points ahead of their opponents.
