Oriali: Bovo deserved red card!

The Nerazzurri were held to a 1-1 draw by Palermo last night and that means Milan could leapfrog them at the top of the table.

“We would all like to win all the time, we know it’s not easy, but we have a competitive squad,” said Oriali.

“If luck is on our side and we don’t have any major injuries, there is the opportunity to go forward in all three competitions.”

This week they qualified for the Champions League quarter-final, which will be against CSKA Moscow, but could lose the Serie A leadership.

Diego Milito’s penalty had given Inter an early lead in Sicily before Edinson Cavani’s equaliser.

“The team played very well with great intensity against an excellent squad. Perhaps we could recriminate over a few incidents.

“The referee had a good game aside from one small flaw. He should’ve shown Cesare Bovo a second yellow card and therefore the red. This could’ve changed the match.

“We’re used to it by now. The referees always apply the rules to the letter when it’s our players.”

Palermo boss Delio Rossi had a similar complaint at the end of the evening, though.

“Perhaps Lucio deserved a second booking for his foul on Javier Pastore. Overall the referee did well.”
