Brendan Rodgers bemoaned the definite penalty that was not awarded as his Leicester side lost out to Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg.
Marvelous Nakamba’s arm was raised as he blocked James Maddison’s shot but, despite a VAR check, no penalty was given and the night ended in disappointment for Leicester.
Trezeguet scored in stoppage-time to give Villa a 2-1 win on the night and a 3-2 win on aggregate to take his team to Wembley – and leave Rodgers frustrated.
“I thought we had a clear handball that looked a definite penalty,” he told Sky Sports. “So I am absolutely gutted for my players because they put so much into the game.

“Especially coming from behind and playing with that composure, scoring a very good goal, and by the end of the game there looked like only one team who were going to win it.
“But we switch off from a cross and then the guy gets in at the back post and scores it. So yeah, a tough one to take because over the two games I felt we were the better side.
“We played with a nice control, nice composure in the game, and created opportunities. I thought we were excellent [but] the goalkeeper has made some outstanding saves.
“Congratulations to Aston Villa. They go through and we have to move on.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved. The information contained in Completesports.com may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the prior written authority of Completesports.com.
