Facing a barrage of criticism after a series of embarrassing pictures emerged showing him holding the football team’s bunny ears, the Italy manager has finally conceded that he is ‘not the only one who sees a problem with this’ but insists that it is ‘nothing personal’.
“I think we all see a problem here,” Francesco Guidolin told Rai Sport.
“It is not my problem.
“I am the only man who can’t understand that, and I am sorry for this. “
I can understand if you can’t believe me.” “
I am the only man who can’t understand that, and I am sorry for this.
I can understand if you can’t believe me.”
The images emerged in Italy’s Serie A on Friday after Italian media outlets identified the man pictured holding the bunny ears as Angelo Di Francesco, a senior assistant at the Giallorossi.
“He has a lot of rabbits,” Guido Di Francescosi, the head of the club’s marketing department, told Rai.
“There are many pictures of him holding a rabbit.
I can assure you that it’s not my fault. “
When we received the pictures, I said to myself: ‘It’s not a problem.’
I can assure you that it’s not my fault.
I don’t know who is behind this.”
The Italian football federation has also expressed its disapproval of the images and has promised to take legal action against the man.
However, Di Franceso told Rai that the club has been ‘forced’ to remove the images, and that they will not be returned.
“They say that they took down the pictures but I have not seen them.
We have never received any money for them,” Di Francesca told RaiSport.
The club has always been open. “
We’ve had no problems since the beginning of this season.
The club has always been open.
I’ve never seen a picture like that in the history of Serie A.””
The images are offensive and disgusting.
