Udinese’s Guidolin unhappy about AC Milan penalty decision

Udinese coach Francesco Guidolin feels his side should have had a point against AC Milan.

The Zebrette succumbed to a 2-1 thanks to a controversial last minute penalty decision.

“It’s not the first time it has happened in my life as a coach. These things happen and there’s nothing we can say,” Guidolin told reporters.

“We were all relaxed seeing the challenge, but when the referee pointed towards the spot I knew we would drop a point that we had deserved.

“Just as we can make mistakes, so can the referee. We had played a good game, although we allowed Milan too many counter-attacks in the first half.

“We improved after the break and equalised, creating a few more positive situations. Milan were struggling and we were controlling against one of the best sides in Serie A right now.

“To get points sometimes you only need an individual moment of magic, but to bring consistency to a team you need performances and in that sense we sent out good signals today.

“We go home with some regret, but from Tuesday will get back to work.”

The result leaves Udinese in ninth place in the Serie A table, one point being Roma in eighth.
