Silvio Berlusconi Calls For Technology After Muntari Incident

AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi, is still lamenting at Sulley Muntari’s disallowed goal, and voices opinions of technology to be introduced in the game. The Italian Champions were held to a 1-1 draw by Juventus at San Siro on Saturday, February 25. The Rossoneri opened the scoring thanks to an Antonio Nocerino strike in the early minutes, and they could have made it 2-0, but Muntari was denied a clear goal by the touchline official. Alessandro Matri’s late equaliser helped Juventus to steal a point from the game. Berlusconi is angry with the referee’s decision, as he believes that his team deserved to win the game. The Rossoneri patron believes that it was obvious that the Ghanaian international had scored, and cannot believe why the referee did not award a goal. He believes that it is about time that technology should be used in the game, as it brings fairness to the results. While talking to the reporters, Berlusconi said: “As for the goal, I am more disappointed than angry. The result was falsified by that incident.” The President has faith in his team, and believes that they can still go onto win the title despite the injustice. “I have a great deal of faith that Milan can win the Scudetto, because our mission is to be stronger than envy, misfortune and injustice. Milan had the right to a positive result. The goal that wasn’t given was absolutely clear for all to see, even without the photographs and video evidence. I have always encouraged the use of technology in football and it would be opportune for referees.” Despite the draw, the Italian Champions remain atop of the Serie A points table, albeit having played an extra game. The Rossoneri have picked up 51 points from 25 matches played so far. Berlusconi also blasted the Lega officials for Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s punishment, and believes that it was not as serious offence as portrayed by the media, and the striker should have been dealt with leniency.
