Europa League, the moviola of Milan and Lazio

During Arsenal-Milan the race director Eriksson grants a non-existent penalty to the Gunners. In Dinamo Kiev-Lazio does not convince Gil Manzano: oversight on the hand of Boyko

Arsenal-Milan – There is a huge black hole in the direction of Eriksson: Arsenal concedes a non-existent penalty on indication from the additional Ekberg. From the series: how to ruin a match and direct the qualification. Perhaps it is the case that the Uefa accelerates the Var project because it is so badly misused: a replay was enough to notice the colossal topica. Welbeck collapses to the ground, late, after Rodriguez’s caress. Simulation evident to be punished with yellow and instead is rewarded with a penalty that puts the English back on track. Eriksson is not new to stuttering directions: yesterday was repeated even on small episodes. On the rest, just after 1-1 Silva turns to the door and the carambola ball on the knuckles of Chambers and then ends up on the arm (wide) of English: we are evaluating it involuntary. In the second half (still on 1-1) Silva always comes into contact with Bellerin in the area: doubtful episode and certainly here the penalty could also be there. Okay, instead, the yellow for simulation shown to Suso.

Dinamo Kiev-Lazio – The management of Gil Manzano is not convincing. At 25 ‘Immobile finds himself without a shoe when he falls in the area, for a touch of Burda on the heel but out of 16 meters: there was still no punishment, not assigned. The most serious mistake on 43 ‘: Boyko overtaken by the lob Immobile touches with his hands outside the area. It would have been punishment from the limit and red for the goalkeeper. Ignored also a tripping over Felipe Anderson penetrating the trocar at half-time.


Milan, Gattuso: “The referee can make mistakes like any other player”

The Milan coach is proud of his: “We showed great solidity, I liked the personality of the team”

Gennaro Gattuso can not be happy. He has also played in the United Kingdom (in Scotland, with the Rangers shirt in the ’97 / ’98 season) and has touched English fair play. He who did not want to believe when he saw the referee Eriksson indicate the spot on the 38th minute. His Milan took the lead at the Emirates Stadium and was putting pressure on Wenger’s Arsenal. Here, from here he wants to restart the Rossoneri coach. From the attitude of Bonucci and his teammates to three-quarters of the race: “I’m proud of my guys and the performance we did in this stadium, we lost the shift at home, what really made me angry is that we do not have to We must play 90. I am nervous about the final result: we must not give up like we did tonight, taking the 3-1 final “.

the penalty for the arsenal – A hint to the offense penalty, however, does: “The players are wrong and, therefore, the referees can also make mistakes.” I do not want to talk about their work tonight. Then a few words on the singles: “Kalinic did not do the preparation, when he is physically good he can give us a big hand, we have three worthy strikers, I will make them rotate, they just have to be ready and work very seriously”. Donnarumma was not precise about the second goal of the Gunners: “Gigio has to raise his head, it was a single episode, he must not be put off, he is one of the best goalkeepers in the world. the rumors of Reina’s arrival or not “. The conclusion is aimed at the season finale: “There are no league matches and an Italian Cup final, we are a young team: we can certainly do more, we showed great solidity tonight and I liked the team’s personality”.

Milan, the tabloids against Welbeck: “He’s a diver”

The English press against the Arsenal striker: “Dan, rescue dive”

Yesterday’s Europa League evening is a resounding “spot” in favor of VAR: in Arsenal-Milan there have been at least three “suspicious” episodes, first of all the resounding penalty awarded to Arsenal Welbeck’s striker who has not era. Cases that probably could have been avoided with video assistance. No later than a few weeks ago, however, UEFA President Aleksandar Ceferin reiterated that there will be no VAR in the Champions League and Europa League next season.

The newspapers – English media very critical with the Arsenal striker, accused of being “a diver” as the Times headlined. On the same wavelength the Sun, which has headline: “Welbeck, storm for the dive”. Ironic the Daily Mail, which playing on the name of the player headline: “Dan, rescue dive”. The Daily Telegraph, on the other hand, reads: “Italian anger over a controversial penalty”. The Mirror turns directly to the disastrous Swedish referee Eriksson and writes: “He went on the ground a little too easily, referee”, clear the reference to Welbeck.

Ferrari-Indy: the option is there if Liberty does not change


We run with the Dallara and V6 turbo chassis: in the event of a break in F1 on the rules, in 2020 … The previous Formula Cart with the red one that Enzo Ferrari had built to put pressure on the International Federation.

And if Sergio Marchionne’s plan was to bring Ferrari to Indy? For now it is only a suggestion, but something behind the scenes moves, after the statements made in Geneva by the president of the red. At that time, speaking of the United States and the hypothesis of one day running the Indianapolis 500, his answer was: “Why not? We have the tradition to do it and we are thinking about it”. At that moment everyone thought of the Alfa Romeo brand, back in F1 this year as a sponsor of Sauber, but who knows that the project can not be about Ferrari itself and its future in racing.
threats – Marchionne’s repeated threats to leave the GPs after 2020, if new rules on engines destined to distort the DNA of F.1 come into force, are a clear message to the American owners of Liberty Media, with whom the negotiations go ahead already for a year. According to Bernie Ecclestone, this is not a bluff. “I know Sergio and I assure you that he is not a guy who talks – the old boss recently told the Guardian – Some people have a new series in mind and I know that Marchionne has had discussions in this direction in the last few weeks. he decided to get away from F1 would be difficult for everyone Ferrari has a great influence and many would follow it “.
indy 500 – The idea of ​​creating an alternative championship is a scarecrow for Liberty, considering how much has been reinforced in recent seasons the political axis of Ferrari with Toto Wolff and Mercedes, which was also recently added by the McLaren of Zak Brown. Three big teams on the same side are an important coalition. But perhaps Marchionne also looks elsewhere. And here the IndyCar comes back into play. Last Friday, the Scuderia Corsa team, which runs with the Ferraris in the Imsa and Endurance championships in North America, announced that it had reached an agreement with the Bobby Rahal team and the TV presenter David Letterman, to race the next 500 Miles of Indianapolis (May 27th) with the Oriol Servia pilot.
background – This is not a new story, considering that the head of Scuderia Corsa is Giacomo Mattioli, the largest Ferrari dealer in the world, as well as father of Enzo jr, great-grandson of the Commendatore and nephew of Piero Ferrari. Behind the operation there could be the paternity of Marchionne, interested in preparing the ground for a possible Indy project, which would be an alternative with which to put pressure on Liberty on the bargaining table. There is the precedent of 1986, when Enzo Ferrari himself decided to build a single-seater for Formula Cart, driven by the disagreements with the International Federation, which had suspended the transition to engines of 1200 cmc, for which Maranello had already achieved a new 4-cylinder. Ferrari Cart never ran, but served as a political tool.
alonso’s example – On the other hand, also the example of McLaren, who last year in a few months set up his participation in Indianapolis with a papaya car driven by Fernando Alonso, shows that the plan is feasible. Indy competes with all the same frames, made in Varano de ‘Melegari from Gian Paolo Dallara’s factory, of which Marchionne in Geneva said: “I consider him a great, the best Italian engineer”. A touch of red would be enough. While for the engine, Ferrari would have no difficulty building it alone, being a traditional 2.2-liter V6 turbo, much simpler and cheaper than the hybrid power units used today in F1.

Sofia embraces the Sphere in tears: “The previous days were very hard to live in. I was wrecked, tired … Vonn … You won the race, but I won the general classification: it’s a great honor to compete with her, to beat her at the end of this season it’s something incredible “

“Barcelona would be a perfect city if it were in another country”

The phrase belongs to agent Fernando Felicevich, representative of several world football stars, such as Alexis Sánchez (Manchester United) or Arturo Vidal (Bayern Munich). Asked about the problems that Alexis had with the tax authorities during his time in Catalonia, when he was in the service of Barcelona, the businessman criticized the city of Barcelona.

“Barcelona is the best city in the world and would be perfect if it were in another country,” said Felicevich quoted by Sport, while still criticizing the work of journalists:

“The biggest enemies of an agent are the bad journalists and the corrupt leaders. I have many friends in the world of football and none of them are journalists. Companions, colleagues, footballers, former footballers, coaches, leaders … no journalists.
