SportMediaset reports the AIA was not pleased with Maresca’s performance in the big game between Jose Mourinho and Stefano Pioli at the Olimpico on Sunday.
The Italian papers highlighted the match official’s errors, especially for a penalty kick he didn’t award to the Giallorossi, as the 40-year-old referee found himself in the middle of a storm.
The many controversial decisions during the game when Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored his 400th goal in domestic leagues.
The Swede was brought down by Roger Ibanez in the second half and the Diavolo doubled their lead, before Stephan El Shaarawy reduced the deficit in stoppages.
Jose Mourinho stormed off after the game and said he wanted to avoid being banned, as he stopped the post-match interview before talking about Maresca.
VAR was criticised too, as they intervened at the wrong times, while the 10 cards, including a second yellow for Theo Hernandez, were part of the unconvincing evaluations, according to the broadcaster.
Fabio Maresca will reportedly be stopped for at least two games after his performance in the controversial match between Roma and Milan, which ended in a 2-1 win for the Rossoneri.
