Italian under-21s talent Marco Nasti is making headlines, but not for the right reasons. As reported by ANSA, Nasti has been expelled from the Italian camp after an altercation with Atalanta winger Matteo Ruggeri, during which Ruggeri suffered a broken nose due to a punch from Nasti.
Nasti's exit from the team's training camp on a Friday morning is attributed to "disciplinary reasons," as confirmed by manager Carmine Nunziata. However, the specific cause of his departure wasn't disclosed by Nunziata.
Nasti has taken to social media to issue a public apology, indicating the seriousness of the incident. He posted on Instagram: "I have already apologised privately, but I want to do it here too. I have great respect for the values of sport and the blue shirt.
"I am very sorry for what happened during the national team's retreat, this must be and will be an opportunity for growth for me."
