Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi has been accused of uttering blasphemous phrases in Monday’s 3-0 win over AC Milan.
According to a report from Italian newspaper Il Tempo (via Cittaceleste.it) earlier today, the Federal Prosecutor’s Office has opened a case against the 45-year-old Italian coach after reports emerged that he said blasphemous expressions during Monday’s match against the Rossoneri.
This is not the first time that Inzaghi has been accused of blasphemy, with the Lazio coach having a history of expressing his frustration in this way. Back in February Inzaghi was fined after blaspheming during the 2-1 win over Sassuolo at the end of January.
It’s likely that Inzaghi will again be forced to pay a fine, although there is a slight chance that he could face a short ban due to the repeated offences.
Blasphemes in Italy are considered the most offensive forms of swearing and it’s against the rules for either players or coaches to utter blasphemous phrases.
Fiorentina coach Beppe Iachini is also currently under investigation after reportedly blaspheming in the 1-1 draw with Juventus on the weekend.
