he said at a press conference.
“But you also need to understand the moment. There’s no way that every foul deserves a booking.
“I don’t have thugs in my team, we play football and we don’t complain to the referee.
“All referees should do like Orsato: explain and understand the situations.
“I trust the referees, I know we have good referees, but sometimes certain things don’t suit me and I can’t shut up.
“I try to explain my point of view and I believe that many in our environment share it.”
The Bologna coach felt the Rossoblu had the match in their hands before Svanberg’s sending off.
“There was no match against the Friulians when we were 11 v 11,” he added. “We probably would have won.

“We can’t lose sight of our principles.”
