Juventus recently played out a 2-2 draw with Salernitana in Serie A, and the game had a fiery conclusion. Max Allegri was sent off, alongside Arek Milik, who thought he had scored the winner only for it to be ruled out by VAR for offside.
However, it has now emerged that the entire Juventus backline was played onside by Antonio Candreva. As a result, the decision to chalk off the goal by the referees was an incorrect one, and it led to some intense reactions from the Juventus camp.
Salernitana president speaks out on refereeing blunder vs Juventus
“The referee error in Juventus-Salernitana? If the Bianconeri want to play it again, there is no problem for us,” Danilo Iervolino said, speaking to Kiss Kiss Napoli (via La Gazzetta dello Sport).
Milik would be sent off for taking his shirt on during celebrations, while already on a yellow card. And the game ended in a draw despite the Old Lady managing to score a late winner. The Italian Referees Association has acknowledged the mistake, and has explained that they did not have access to all the angles needed to make the right call – which seems quite bizarre.
The Bianconeri are now preparing for their Champions League game against Benfica in midweek.
