Morgan De Sanctis: The Juventus plan is to confuse the referee


Roma goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis is still fuming about referee mistakes in the 3-2 defeat with Juventus.

The Bianconeri were gifted two penalties by referee Gianluca Rocchi in what was a controversial match at the Juventus stadium with the former Napoli keeper believing the referee was affected by the reaction of the Juventus players.

"Listen, I want to read everything I'm about to say in tomorrow's paper, do not omit anything" De Sanctis told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"With twenty years of football behind him, [Francesco] Totti did the right thing to talk the way he did [after Juventus-Roma].

"One has to be gracious in defeat but it's not easy to accept certain decisions because it feels as if the game is not fair anymore.

"It's absurd how four-five Juventus players surrounded referee Rocchi, who is a very good referee.

"It's all planned, a plan they use when there is uncertainty [in the referee's mind]."
