Bakayoko: “The referee cost us with mistakes, but we must respond”

By Madison Derian-Toth -

AC Milan midfielder Tiemouè Bakayoko reflected on Saturday’s defeat to Juventus by adding his name to the group criticising referee Michael Fabbri.

Moise Kean netted a late winner for the home side in Turin, though Milan felt aggrieved to have not had two penalties – one on Alex Sandro and one for a kick-out by Mario Mandzukic.

“It was a very good game. It was a good performance for the team, although we didn’t play perfect,” Bakayoko told Milan TC.

“I’m happy with my game and I was happy to assist our goal. Too bad, however, that it didn’t help anything.

“I have already scored against Inter, but we lost. We were not lucky, but we must continue to work.

“It is a performance that will also help us achieve our personal goal. I think the referee was wrong in some situations, I think the VAR will be increasingly used all over the world, and I think that on some situations we deserved better.

“It is a pity, but we must not hide behind the referee, because we played a good game. We let in two avoidable goals, but we will study our mistakes. Milan must return to the great team that it once was.”
