Milan team manager Andrea Romeo has been given a one-match ban for a “blasphemous expression” during the Derby della Madonnina defeat.
Serie A reported that Romeo had been given the ban for getting off the bench and using the expression, which to be honest, is probably pretty tame compared to the language that was used by the Milan supporters after Mauro Icardi scored the winning goal.
The “team manager” is a liaison between the players and the club and/or coach, and not a “manager” in the sense of the word as UK would know it, and appears similar to a “student manager” in high school sports in the United States.
Either way, he said something he shouldn’t have, and now he’s in trouble.
