And finally… Italian manager attacks player

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

Fiorentina boss Delio Rossi managed to get himself sacked earlier this week after attacking his own player. Rumoured Arsenal target Adem Ljajic sarcastically applauded Rossi after being substituted early in the game only for Rossi to grab Ljajic by the neck and throw punch or two. The Serb midfielder showed little inclination for a physical battle, perfect for Arsenal’s midfield then – we jest, Gooners!
