'Only in Italy does saying f*ck off get you a red card' – Napoli boss Gattuso fuming after Insigne dismissal vs Inter


The Azzurri's head coach feels that officials should use their common sense when a player reacts to a decision with profanity

Gennaro Gattuso complained that Italian referees were too “touchy” and should adopt the tolerance of Scottish officials after Napoli captain Lorenzo Insigne was sent off for swearing in the 1-0 defeat to Inter.

The Napoli boss was fuming that Davide Massa dismissed Insigne for his objections to the awarding of a penalty that Romelu Lukaku converted in Wednesday's Serie A clash.

David Ospina brought down Matteo Darmian, and Insigne was quick to express his dismay at the decision, with Massa equally wasting no time in brandishing the red card.
