Lazio responds to Mourinho: This is a penalty even on Mars

Controversy has erupted following the Capital derby in the Coppa Italia with Roma manager, José Mourinho, criticising the penalty awarded to Lazio. According to Mourinho, this was a modern penalty awarded due to VAR, which would not have been granted in past times.

Lazio responded with a definitive image on their social media platforms with the caption: “This is a penalty even on Mars”. The image showed the contact between Huijsen and Castellanos that led referee Orsato and the VAR to award the 11-meter shot, which was successfully converted by Zaccagni and ultimately decided the derby.

The controversial image was posted on Lazio’s official Twitter account.
