Claudio Ranieri isn’t convinced with the penalty as it changed the game around

In a game that

Sampdoria

lost 2-0 the ref gave

Cagiari

a penalty after he showed One of the Sampdoria players a red card

“We had been in control of the game until the red card and then the penalty. After that, it put the match in a situation that Cagliari wanted, able to strike on the counter and see more of the ball,”

Ranieri

told Sky Sport Italia.

 

“Unfortunately, when you are 10 against 11, they have an extra man who can help create something. We never gave up, we had some chances to get back into it, but it was an uphill struggle from that point.

 

“When

Jakub Jankto

stole the ball, if he’d put it right for

Fabio Quagliarella

, we were in.

 

“I am not convinced by the penalty, as the players who were on the touchline said the assistant waved that it wasn’t a foul. Mind you, I never believe players, as they lie!” laughed Ranieri.

 

“I did accept the red card, as he was indeed the last man, so I did expect the referee to change that from a yellow to red. It’s

Augello’s

fault, certainly, but looking at it again, I think our goalkeeper could’ve got to the ball first.

 

“If the shoe had been on the other foot, I would’ve complained at not getting a red card for that! On the penalty, I don’t think I would’ve asked for that…”
