‘Angry’ Henrikh Mkhitaryan didn’t want to speak about the referee after Roma-Sassuolo: ‘Everyone saw what happened.’
The Giallorossi were held to a 0-0 draw at the Olimpico by Sassuolo but had Pedro sent off in the first half while the former Manchester United and Arsenal man had a goal disallowed.
“We played well even if we were down to ten men, we had several goal scoring opportunities,” the Armenian told Sky Sport.
“I am not going to talk about the referee, everyone saw what happened. It’s enough to just look at the images.”
Paulo Fonseca was also sent off before the half-time break and said after the game he ‘didn’t understand’ the referee.
“We are angry for what happened,” Mkhitaryan continued.
“I am angry because I’ve had a goal disallowed for the second time, I am angry because Pedro was sent off even if the second yellow card was fair. We are going to focus on the next games.”
Can Roma be title contenders?
“It’s still to early to say that, there is balance up there. It’s going to be a long season, we’ll give our best to get a Champions League placement.”
