Massimiliano Riccini was sacked from his position as the head of Italian Under-18 side Invictasauro after his team recorded a 27-0 win against Marina Calcio on Saturday.
Invictasauro are currently on top of Italian their youth league, but the Club hierarchy are not happy with how the team disgraced a Marina Calcio side in a league encounter on Saturday.
Marina Calcio struggled to compete in the game as the team suffered series of injury and had to field an outfield player as goalkeeper who went on have a day to forget in goal.
However the Marina Calcio sporting director Tiberio Pratesi said the entire team was disrespected by their opponents and called for apology from Invictasauro’s management.
Following the complaint, Invictasauro president Paolo Brogelli issued an official statement confirming that Riccini has been relieved from his position.
“We were stunned and deeply regretful when hearing that our Juniores team had beaten Marina Calcio 27-0,” Brogelli said.
“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.”
