“I don’t like talking about these things, but today I will,” Ancelotti said in his postmatch news conference, when asked about the penalty and disallowed goal. “The first situation is quite clear. [Asensio] didn’t touch the ball with his hand. I spoke to him. He touched it with his chest.”
“His left hand was in a strange position, and if he touched the ball with his hand there could be a doubt. But he didn’t. They invented it. The second one is more debatable. [Gazzaniga] didn’t have total control [of the ball]. You can have an opinion on that, you can give it or not. What surprises me is the penalty.”
