Del Piero stands with Acerbi: “The exchange of the jersey is sacred…”

Lazio may have lost to Milan at the San Siro on Saturday, but what will be remembered is not what happened on the pitch but off it. The incident involving Franck Kessie and Tiemoue Bakayoko is still generating conversation, with many siding with either party. Alessandro Del Piero, the former Juventus striker, commented on the event via Sky Calcio Club.

Shirt swapping is a sacred moment. It’s like what happens in the locker room. There has been a lack of respect. Gattuso is right: you just have to apologize. If there hadn’t been this scene with the jersey today we would have talked about the exchange itself. For him that would have been a wonderful ending to the confrontation that took place on social media.
