Watch wild Jose Mourinho SENT OFF for furious reaction as Roma refused penalty and Zaniolo suffers wardrobe malfunction | The Sun
19th September 2022

ROMA boss Jose Mourinho was sent off on Sunday after a furious penalty appeal against Atalanta.

And Nicolo Zaniolo endured a wild couple of minutes after he was booked for diving and then suffered a major wardrobe malfunction.

The Giallorossi were 1-0 down early in the second half and Zaniolo then found himself bearing down on goal with a defender on his shoulder.

The 23-year-old tried to win a penalty as he grappled with the defender, but was instead guilty of giving away a foul for diving, a decision which left Mourinho furious on the touchline.

Consequently, the hot-headed Mourinho was sent off by the referee and was forced to watch the rest of the game at the Stadio Olimpico from the stands.

But the drama was not finished there, as Zaniolo was involved once again moments later.

This time he was grappling with the defender, but as the defender grabbed at his shorts Zaniolo suffered a major wardrobe malfunction.

The Italian will be thankful he chose to wear some pants on Sunday, after the defending player fell to the ground during his grab and revealed Zaniolo's tighty-whities.

He then fell to the floor and pleaded once again for a penalty to be awarded, but the referee repeated his earlier decision.

Despite, having the superior chances – as proven by Roma's xG of 2.44 to Atalanta's 0.17 – Roma went on to lose the game against the Serie A table toppers.
