Serra apologised to Milan players after cancelling out a potential Junior Messias winner in minute 92.
The referee rushed to give a free-kick to the Rossoneri without playing advantage, so Messias’ goal didn’t stand. Spezia shocked Milan a few minutes later with a later winner.
The Diavoli coach Stefano Pioli said both his players and the referee have to be blamed for the Rossoneri’s loss.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Il Corriere dello Sport and Il Corriere della Sera, Serra was reduced to tears after the match and Milan star Ibrahimovic consoled him in the dressing room, telling him that ‘mistakes happen.’
Three or four more Milan players joined the Swede to talk to the match official after the match.
According to reports in Italy, Serra will be suspended by the AIA, possibly for more than two games.
