Giampaolo expulsion in Sampdoria-Milan: Sampdoria technician furious against referee Fabbri. The reconstruction
We are in the sixth minute of recovery. There challenge between Sampdoria and Milannow at sunset, it takes on a Far West shape due to the infamous mania of protagonism of the referee Michael Fabbri which, devoid of any alibi, confirms the bad direction of the race. The whistle of Ravenna sees a swing of Mehdi Leris on the face of Theo Hernandeza simple game contrast that turns into a sort of voluntary act to be punished with a warning. Marco Giampaolo there, the episode takes place in front of his bench.
The Sampdoria coach is not there, he unleashes all his frustration (legitimate after that penalty not assigned to Sampdoria for foul on Abdelhamid Sabiri) for yet another controversial decision of the match. Fabbri hears a word too many (“jerk”) uttered by Giampaolo, loses his temper and decides to expel the coach. He doesn’t try to calm things down, he doesn’t understand the situation and almost estranges himself from a match that he has transformed for several minutes into a settling of scores. So much so that even Tomas Rincon tells him to calm down. But it is too late, the damage (in the plural makes it better) is done.
