Italian Side Sack Coach after 27-0 Win

Italian Side Sack Coach after 27-0 Win

Massimiliano Riccini lost his job as Italian Under-18 side Invictasauro's manager after allowing his players to drum up a 27-0 scoreline against Marina Calcio on Saturday.

Tuscany-based Invictasauro, who sit top of their youth league, showed no mercy against bottom side Marina Calcio, with two players scoring six goals and another netting seven over the course of the 90 minutes.

A number of injury issues forced Marina Calcio to put their trust in an outfield player in goal and he endured a miserable afternoon between the sticks against ruthless opposition.

The club's sporting director Tiberio Pratesi issued a complaint after the match, insisting his side were the victims of gross disrespect. 
An Invictasauro official called Pratesi to apologise for the result, before club president Paolo Brogelli released an official statement confirming Riccini's immediate dismissal. Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
