Sun 17 October 2021 | 23:27

Roma midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has said the Giallorossi were the better side after their controversial 1-0 defeat to Juventus.

Moise Kean

’s early goal proved enough to seal all three points for

Juventus

in a game that will be remembered for a controversial VAR decision just before half-time.

Roma

striker

Tammy Abraham

put the ball into the back of the net but the goal was not allowed because referee

Daniele Orsato

had already whistled for a penalty.

Jordan Veretout

stepped up for the spot-kick but he failed to convert his penalty.

“Why could they not wait until the move had finished and then blow the whistle?”

Mkhitaryan

told

DAZN

.

“With offside, they always wait even five or eight seconds, so why not the same with a penalty? Everyone saw what happened, so I can’t say more than that.

“Naturally, we are frustrated. We were the better team today, we created many scoring opportunities, we could’ve done more to finish them, but we are improving and know we can win if we keep playing like that.”

The result means Juventus move up into the seventh position. Roma, meanwhile, remain in fourth on 15 points and two behind third-placed Inter.
