FIGC President Carlo Tavecchio defends referees and their 'burdensome job' from the controversy surrounding Napoli-Atalanta.

The Partenopei are kicking up a storm over a perceived foul by Mauricio Pinilla that resulted in them conceding a goal in Sunday’s 1-1 draw.

Tavecchio, who was at the national refereeing summit today involving players, referees, Coaches and directors, spoke to the press in defence of the officiating category.

“Football gathers tensions of all kind, from those of a social nature to the economic ones, and these often overshadow the sporting aspect,” he told the Press.

“But right now our football is reaching some important results, especially in Europe,” Tavecchio continued, presumably in reference to the continued campaigns of Juventus, Napoli and Fiorentina in the Champions League and the Europa League.

“We must focus on those things that improve our level. We don't need tensions emerging from officiating decisions.

“The referee has a burdensome job and he does it with the maximum commitment.

“The FIGC believes in the work done by the game, just as with the interests of the club.

“Mistakes have to be accepted, a referee can make a mistake in the same way that a director, a Coach or a footballer can.”
