Moratti blasts game-changing penalty

9 April 2013 03:31

Inter president Massimo Moratti has hit out at the 'nonexistent' penalty conceded in Sunday's 4-3 defeat by Atalanta.

Inter were leading 3-1 with less than 30 minutes to play, but the controversial decision to award the visitors a spot kick sparked a comeback that saw the hosts lose to a 12-minute German Denis hat-trick.

"I'll only comment on the penalty. A penalty like that truly changes a match. It puts a team in a position in which they feel they don't matter," Moratti told reporters.

"With a nonexistent penalty that goes against you, everyone usually does things in good faith. Do I believe that was done in good faith? No."

The 67-year-old also hinted that Inter's failure to earn a penalty in their 20 outings goes beyond statistical logic.

"I believe 20 or 21 matches have passed since the last time we got a penalty in our favour. I think it's impossible not to have deserved one in 21 games," he added.
