Maurizio Sarri delivered a foul mouthed reply when asked whether Napoli’s Serie A chances were over after goalless draw at Inter.
MILAN — Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri has apologised for patronising comments made to a female journalist after his side’s Serie A match on Sunday.
The journalist asked Sarri if Napoli’s title hopes had been damaged after drawing with Inter Milan 0-0 coupled with Juventus’ victory over Udinese.
Sarri smiled as he replied: “You’re a woman, you’re beautiful, and I won’t tell you to [expletive] off for those two reasons.”
