Forward Chinese Shandong Luneng Graziano Pelle will not play in the upcoming game, Italy squadra Azzurra against Macedonia.
The reason for this is the boorish behavior of one of the highest paid players in the world. At the 59th minute of yesterday’s meeting against Spain (1:1) Graziano was replaced. Leaving the field, the players thank the coach, shaking hands with Tom. However, Pelle pointedly walked past Giampiero Ventura and angrily went to the bench.
An apology for your player from Shandong Luneng was not enough and today it became known that the striker has left the team.
“Ventura decided to remove the player from the team for the match with Macedonia this Sunday for disrespectful behaviour during yesterday’s match with Spain.
To become part of a team Italy should be one and respect of staff and partners on command is the most basic requirement for each of the players of the national team. Today the player will return to his club,” – this statement a few hours ago was made by the Italian football Federation.
