AC Milan full back Davide Calabria has come under fire after showing the middle finger in celebration over the derby win against Inter, according to a report from Italian media outlet FcInter1908 yesterday.
The report details how the 23-year-old Italian right back, who is contracted to the Rossoneri until 2022, showed the gesture after the final whistle in Saturday’s match, where his side walked away 2-1 winners.
Calabria played the full 90 minutes in the clash, his seventh full game of the season.
Some AC Milan fans have celebrated the gesture online, but Nerazzurri fans are calling for the player to be punished.
The 23-year-old Italian is a product of the Rossoneri’s youth system and has never played for another club so far in his career, and so the derby is likely to have extra meaning. Regardless, the gesture is considered offensive.
Saturday’s game was Calabria’s second ever win over Inter in his career.
Pictures of his celebration can be found on Twitter:
