Venezia defender Ethan Ampadu saw red in Tuesday night's 2-1 defeat at home to Salernitana.

With the score at 1-1, the on-loan Chelsea prospect was sent off for a foul on Franck Ribery.

“We did well in the first half and Salernitana naturally came back at us, but then the referee was the worst man on the pitch and he ruined the game," Venezia coach Paolo Zanetti told DAZN.

“Look, we could've done better too, but the referee was even called over by VAR to see it again. His earlier yellow card on Ampadu was also absurd, as it wasn't a foul.

“This destroys and transforms important matches. We are in Serie A and do not expect this sort of thing. We'll struggle to remain in Serie A, but we want to fight to earn our place on our own merits, not decisions like this.

“I consider myself an honest person and I have no issue saying things to people's faces. This is the reality of the situation."
