Interviewed by Corriere dello Sport, Gianluca Rocchi, new designator after Rizzoli, spoke to Corriere dello Sport of the moment of the Italian referees, of some controversial episode and more.
“I don’t like to talk about the single episode. Let’s say that it is one of the subjective episodes, the interpretation of the referee on the field must be left”.
The penalty on Lautaro not given against Verona or on Dybala in Juve-Empoli has also created controversy.
“We asked the guys not to give that kind of rigor, keeping a high threshold. I’m happy, they understood the concept.”
Can a referee refuse a review?
“We, here, hear everything: if he does it he will not referee. Not a day, he will not referee any more. These guys have great quality, I ask you to support them, because they are good. Give us a chance, we will bring Italy back to the top of the league. ‘Europe as referees. Italian football will also win “.
What is the referee’s line of action on the field?
“I asked to think as if there was no technology. I would not want to rely only on the VAR, this must be a different mental path.”
“That of superficiality, when they underestimate an episode and do not use all the tools we have given them. I get angry at the avoidable error, not at the error itself”.
