An Italy fan has set tongues wagging after immortalizing Giorgio Chiellini’s controversial foul on Bukayo Saka during the Euro 2020 final.
The unidentified fan ensured people don’t get to forget that moment in a hurry as he got it tattooed on his arm, as seen on and Givemesport.
Recall that 19-year-old Saka was cynically fouled by 36-year-old Chiellini as he broke away on the counter during Italy vs England.
The Italian captain was booked for the challenge, although some believed it was worthy of a red card
Chiellini’s antics on Saka went viral on social media with many England fans venting their anger on the Italian legend.
Some of the fans were of the opinion that the final should be replayed because of that controversial moment.
But an Italian fan has now ensured a lot of people will not forget Chiellini’s antics in a long while.
In the tattoo on his arm, Saka looks to be getting pulled away from the Euro trophy, in a similar manner to how he was pulled on the pitch.
Chiellini claims he put a curse on Saka before his penalty miss
Chiellini has cheekily confessed that he put a “curse” on Bukayo Saka before the youngster took his penalty in the Euro 2020 final.
Slow-motion footage of Italy players as Saka stepped up to take the penalty showed the experienced defender mouthing the word ‘Kiricocho’ moments before racing to celebrate with goalkeeper Donarrumma after he made the decisive save.
The term Kiricocho’ has a pretty bizarre story behind it and it originated from South America.
It is actually the name of a supporter of Argentine club Estudiantes, who was associated with bad luck.
Saka breaks silence after Euro heartbreak
Elsewhere, Saka ended his three-day silence with a powerful statement after missing the decisive penalty in the Euro 2020 final.
The teenager’s powerful statement was met with positive reactions from online users, who were glad to see he had made a comeback on his Twitter.
