Fazio: ‘Roma denied two penalties’

Federico Fazio believes Roma’s Champions League semi-final represents “growth” for the club, but Liverpool got away with “two clear penalties.”

The Giallorossi won 4-2 on the night, but went out of 7-6 on aggregate.

“This should represent consistent growth, so we have to reach this stage next season and try to build on what we’ve done,” Fazio told Mediaset Premium.

“This is continuing what we’ve done so far and the way we did it, playing good football. It’s a pity about today, especially with two incredible penalties not given to us.

“Plus the referee only gave three minutes of stoppages… We have to think positive, take all the positive things we’ve done aside from the two penalties, lift our heads and continue.”
