It seems that some of the AC Milan players were aggrieved by Fabrizio Pasqua’s refereeing during last night’s defeat to Napoli, and they have good reason.
In the 69th minute of the game at San Siro, Theo Hernandez went down in serious pain after a challenge from Di Lorenzo on the edge of the area, winning a free-kick. A yellow card was given to the Italian full-back.
However, after watching the replay of the foul, it is easy to notice Di Lorenzo going in with studs showing on Theo Hernandez’s ankle. Therefore, a red card should have been awarded.
Then of course there was the penalty incident in the closing stages of the game in which Theo went down having been at best scraped and at worst impeded by Bakayoko. Softer penalties have been given.

Theo Hernandez made his thoughts on the referee’s game clear on social media, as the full-back posted a story on Instagram with an image of Mr. Pasqua and some emojis that highlight his displeasure.
