Former Juventus striker urinates on the pitch

Lecce striker Cristiano Bunino was introduced in the 73rd minute by manager Luciano Foschi. The 26-year-old never got a kick, before urinating on the side of the pitch as he got ready to be sent on by his boss. The assistant referee wasn’t too happy. Bunino did his best to conceal hisd actions, but the eagle-eyed officials spotted the act and promptly sent him off.

Coach Foschi is reported by Gazzetta dello Sport to have said: “It’s the rules and they must be applied. But I was hoping that the officials would use common sense because he didn’t offend anyone, no-one saw it. I was hoping for a yellow card, but the referee didn’t make a mistake. And Bunino? In my opinion, he didn’t even know what was going to happen.”

Lecce vs Piacenza ended 0-0, and now Cristiano Bunino will have to serve a rather silly suspension. Maybe Serie C isn’t so boring after all?
