Liverpool might have won 2-0 against Inter Milan at Anfield and much of the credit goes to them but in Italy, they are actually blaming the referee for sending off Italian international defender Marco Materazzi inside the first 30 minutes of the match.
And blaming the player himself. Setanta Sports quotes Inter striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic blaming Marco Materazzi for letting them down and hints that the former Everton defender’s sending off slipped the advantage to the Reds.
The Swedish international striker is quoted as saying:
Why did we lose? Why don’t you ask Materazzi?
Yet Materazzi is not to be blamed. After all, he didn’t even touch Liverpool striker Fernando Torres for his first yellow card.
