Referee Gianpaolo Calvarese told Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic why it was a ‘clear penalty’ for Juventus in the Coppa Italia semi-final.
The incident occurred during the first half at San Siro, with the Nerazzurri 1-0 up.
Juan Cuadrado went down in the box after a tussle with Ashley Young, although Federico Bernardeschi’s cross was already flying into the stands.
Advised to have an on-field review by his VAR, Calvarese went to look at the replay and opted for a penalty.
RAI sport reported that the referee went to goalkeeper Handanovic to explain his decision.
“It’s a clear penalty, he held on to his arm.”
