Commisso asks respect: “Var useless if not used”


The owner of Fiorentina after the penalty awarded to Lazio, and not only: “So there is no certainty that everything has been judged in the best possible way”. The only good news is the return of Ribery

The night did not sweeten the bitterness. Fiorentina heavily disputes the direction of the competition at the Olimpico. In particular, the decision not to reevaluate some episodes with the help of the technological medium. From the United States, the patron Rocco Commisso intervened through the company’s official channel. Which started by praising Ribery. “I have seen a player above all others, who with the Viola shirt and the number 7 really amused me as I think all the fans who love good football. Frank Ribery considering his age and physical recovery after a long injury is was a phenomenal state, it is an example for everyone. The team also performed well “.


Commisso then focused on the penalty awarded to Lazio and other contested episodes. “Seeing the images and hearing and reading the international comments of the televisions, the sites and the social media with many criticisms relating to the refereeing of the match, I wonder why after more examples that have covered not only Fiorentina but also many others teams, a more meaningful and above all useful use of technology and of the Var in particular has not yet been decided. As I pointed out several months ago, I continue to think that the teams must be given the opportunity to call the referees to use the Var, with rules to be defined, so as to allow everyone to have no doubts and to be sure that everything has been judged in the best possible way “.

Looks ahead

The President Commisso ended his speech with this reflection. “I will continue to be the first person who will fight for the respect of Fiorentina and the Viola People and for Italian football in general. The good news is that I have seen a growing team and I want to congratulate the boys. Now the attention goes to Wednesday’s game with Sassuolo and the hope is that everyone will play their role in the best way, for an increasingly fair football “.
