Abraham distraught at Roma ban against Inter

Roma striker Tammy Abraham was left distraught after a bizarre call from the referee against Bologna, meaning he will be suspended against Inter.

The centre-forward was shown the yellow card by Luca Pairetto for what appeared to be an accidental collision with Bologna midfielder Mattias Svanberg on the stroke of half-time.

England international Abraham knew immediately that it meant he would sit out a ban this weekend in the big match with Serie A title holders Inter.

He was distraught and tried for several minutes to argue his case with the referee and assistants, but you cannot appeal a yellow card in Serie A.

VAR can also not be used in cases of yellow cards, only a straight red or penalty situation.

It’s a huge loss for Roma, as Abraham has scored four goals in 14 Serie A appearances so far this season, plus another four in five Europa Conference League games.

    This English fraud has more cards than goals in Italy.

    Can’t they lodge an appeal for the yellow card later if it’s a clear mistake?


    Gee, another call made by the referee that favors Inter AND VAR cannot intervene…..i’m seeing the Handanovic elbow on Deflrel and no call on inter all over again. If i was a prescritti fan, I would never once complain about VAR because they are getting the carrot not the stick from VAR

    Wait I thought VAR is only used during red cards or incidents leading to a goal. Anyways he gets way too many yellows for a player in his position.

    Defrel dived. juve are in the CL because of a similar Cuadrado dive last season Mr. I Miss Marco Branca, don’t dare talk about refs considering the number of titles juve stole from various clubs. Focus on your team being in 7th place, 10 points behind the reigning Champions. Oh and Branca won the Treble as a director so your nickname is silly. Prescritti you mean like Agricola? Ajax want back their CL from 1996 which your doped team stole. Moggi was also prescribed in the civil court trial…
