OM: Gattuso came back to face the 4th referee – Football

Gennaro Gattuso is back after the defeat of Olympique de Marseille on the Nice pitch (0-1) this Saturday, as part of the 9th day of Ligue 1. Because just before the goal scored with a header by Evann Devinant on a free kick for the Aiglons, Italian technology wanted to bring in Bamo Met and Geoffrey Kondogbia in order to bring size into the area following the red card received from Leonardo Balerdi. But “the fourth referee said no”, as the Marseille coach recounted.

« Why didn’t they let me make the change? You have to ask the fourth referee (smile). I don’t know why, and I got angry at the time. I wanted to bring in my two players who are tall , but the fourth official said no.

« We had a good match, yes, but to win matches you have to score goals. It was a good performance, yes, but we will have to work more and resolve certain details. I am not targeting anyone tonight, nor “My attackers nor Leonardo. I told my players that this would help us progress,” concluded Gattuso.
