Torino General Manager Antonio Comi says referee Paolo Valeri was wrong in sending off Afriyie Acquah in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Juventus in the Derby della Mole.
Acquah was booked for the second time in the match on 57 minutes after going in with a sliding tackle on Mario Mandzukic.
Television replay showed Acquah got the ball and the Juventus player simulated.
“The manager thinks this was a great match, where both teams played a great game, Torino took the lead, then the Acquah episode. In my opinion the referee may be wrong, but I’m sorry that someone considers this a foul and that should have been a warning,” Comi told Sky Sport after the match.
