Visit: https://subscribe.premiersports.tv/ In a truly bizarre story, a youth team coach was fired for setting a bad example to the children by “disrespecting opponents” in a 27-0 victory. Not many managers can say they’ve been sacked after a win, let alone a 27-0 result, but that is what happened in Grosseto-based youth club Invictasauro. “We were stunned and deeply regretful when hearing that our Juniores team had beaten Marina Calcio 27-0,” said President Paolo Brogelli in a statement. “The values of youth team football are antithetical to such a thing. The opponent must always be respected and that did not happen today. “As President, I sincerely apologise to the Marina club. I announce that our directors decided, unanimously, to sack coach Riccini. “Our coaches have the duty to train young players, but above all to educate them. That did not happen today.”last_img
