Pioli rues disallowed Bennacer goal in Coppa Italia defeat to Inter

Milan were left to focus on the Serie A title race after they were knocked out of the Coppa Italia by Inter on Tuesday.

Stefano Pioli responded angrily to refereeing decisions following Milan’s elimination from the Coppa Italia after a 3-0 loss to arch-rivals Inter on Tuesday.

Pioli abruptly walked out of his post-match interview with Mediaset after reviewing footage of a disallowed goal for Ismael Bennacer where Pierre Kalulu was ruled offside for obstructing Samir Handanovic’s view in the Inter goal.

With Milan 2-0 down in the 68th minute of the second leg of the semi-final clash.

Bennacer’s goal would have been timely and given them critical late momentum.

After seeing the replay, the 56-yearold Rossoneri boss could not hide his frustration.

Pioli told Mediaset:

“Look at Handanovic’s reaction if he protests.

“He doesn’t do anything. If a Milan player had blocked his view, he would have immediately run to protest. Come on, now.”

Milan was marginally second best for most of a tightly fought match, and Lautaro Martinez’s first-half double was ultimately reflective of the game’s complexion.

Regardless of how much the disallowed goal could have influenced proceedings, Pioli conceded Inter were the better side.

“We wanted to win, and we failed. We came up against a strong opponent,” Pioli said. “The result is clear, but I don’t think it was like there was a significant difference, and Inter scored at the right moments.

“We continued to play and create. 2-1 would have given us the possibility because we were playing. After that, everything became more difficult.

“Of course, we can do more. When you concede three goals, others play with more quality. Unfortunately, it was not our evening. It’s too bad because we wanted to reach the final at all costs.”
