Nerves tense to Franchi with the president of Empoli who discusses with the referee designator and the coach who vents after the game. Here’s what happened
Empoli loses the Tuscan derby with Fiorentina, but it doesn’t fit. And protest. Some referee decisions don’t go down to President Corsi’s club. At 40 ‘Andreazzoli’s team passes with a splendid overhead shot by Federico Di Francesco but the goal is canceled by the referee Massimi (after a review at the Var) for a previous contact by Pinamonti against Pietro Terracciano. And in the stands, Corsi begins to get nervous. At the end of the first half, Luperto is booked for a foul on Cabral in front of the Empoli bench. And on this occasion it is Andreazzoli who complained and argued with the fourth official, believing that the Fiorentina center forward and not his defender was to be sanctioned.
At 57 ‘Luperto is sent off for a double yellow card, for a foul on Gonzalez, and the president of Empoli Corsi gets up from where he was sitting in the stands and goes to the referee Rocchi to protest animatedly. Probably not so much for the second foul but for the first one sanctioned the visiting defender, in the first half for the foul on Cabral which caused quite a bit of controversy on the pitch. Images also resumed on televisions, with Rocchi trying to explain the decision taken on the pitch by the referee to the top manager of Empoli. When the game resumed, Fiorentina immediately went ahead with a header from Gonzalez.
After the game Andreazzoli returns to what he thinks was the key episode, the first admonition to Luperto: “I was two meters away. And the foul was from Cabral. It wasn’t just me of this idea, but also the fourth official But he can’t say it. These situations weigh heavily in the end. And they affect the final result. We weren’t allowed even the last game. Those who have no sensitivity have to change jobs. I don’t understand why to blow the whistle before the end. Probably nothing would have happened, but at least let’s try to play it “.
