Zidane’s headbutt causes the dismissal of a coach (video)

The Italian League witnessed a very interesting incident on Sunday that led to the dismissal of a coach from his position, after the match between Lecce and Hellas Verona.

Verona won with an unanswered goal, and Lecce coach Roberto De Aversa was angry, who took to the field to quarrel with the opponent’s players.

In his anger, De Aversa assaulted Verona striker Thomas Henry and headbutted him in the style of Zinedine Zidane in the 2006 World Cup final.

Because of what he did, and although the coach apologized for it in the press conference, the Lecce administration immediately announced his dismissal.

Perhaps what De Aversa did was the straw that broke the camel’s back and precipitated his dismissal, given that Lecce have only won once in their last 12 matches and are in 15th place, one point behind the relegation places.

It is noteworthy that De Aversa took over as coach of Lecce last summer and has played 30 matches since then, winning only 6 of them, losing 14, and drawing 10 others.
