In yet another PR disaster for Italian football, Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero has apologised for telling Massimo Moratti to “Kick that Filipino out of Inter”. The Genoa club moved swiftly to apologise for the comments made on Rai’s Stadio Sprint but the damage appears to have been done. Ferrero insisted he was speaking out of respect for Moratti and meant no disrespect to Thohir or any member of the Nerazzurri’s entourage. As Gazzetta dello Sport has reported this morning, Thohir has chosen not to reply to the comments thus showing his disapproval. Italian football has been plagued by such gaffs which even saw the recently elected president of the FIGC refer to African footballers as “Banana eaters”.
