Ex-Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri gives middle finger after row Lazio clash with Verona leaving fans in stitches | The Sun

FORMER Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has left fans in hysterics after he is caught giving someone the middle finger.

The now Lazio boss was spotted live on TV aiming the gesture at a member of the Hellas Verona bench.


The Rome based side had just scored via Ciro Immobile when Sarri took offence to something said by a member of the Verona backroom team.

Reports in Italy suggested Sarri was arguing with their coach Alessandro Mazzola.

Sarri, 63, has since cleared up the incident saying in a post-match press conference: "I had the feeling he had told me ‘Sit down,'

"After that, we cleared up and we laughed about it."
