Irate Italian soccer fans demanded that the Genoa Serie A soccer team hand over their jerseys because they weren’t good enough to wear them.
It happened during Sunday’s match between Genoa and Siena.
Genoa fans were so upset that their team was losing 4-0 at one point, that they threw smoke bombs and firecrackers onto the field. Then they demanded that the players take off their shirts because they weren’t “worthy of the colors.”
All of the Genoa players cooperated, except for loan striker Giuseppe Sculli, who refused to remove his shirt. Wingback Giandomenico Mesto broke down in tears.
Play finally resumed after a 40-minute delay.
Siena won 4-1.
On Monday, the Genoa team fired coach Alberto Malesani. They replaced him with Luigi De Canio for the final five matches of Serie A. That marks a record 18th coaching change in the Italian league this season.
Genoa has the worst defense in the league and is one point above the relegation zone with a match at AC Milan on Wednesday.
