Marotta regrets Brkic red card

3 September 2012 10:36

Giuseppe Marotta feels the harsh dismissal of Udinese goalkeeper Zeljko Brkic on Sunday decided the match in Juventus' favour.

The reigning champions cruised to a comfortable 4-1 victory after their opponents were reduced to 10 men, but Juve director Marotta would have preferred to bag the three points against a full-strength Udinese.

"The goalkeeper's red card was a big factor in the game and I honestly think it was a harsh decision," Marotta told the Juventus website.

"We came to the Friuli for a win. However, winning against 10 men is no great joy. We would have preferred to beat them on equal terms. We're pleased to have won but would have preferred to do it against a full team.

"In the next meetings we'll have to start a dialogue with the refereeing body with a view to changing this rule or getting referees to change their approach, because this damages the game as a spectacle."

Following the international break, Juve are back in action on away to Genoa on September 16.
