‘SHAMEFUL’: Roma captain Pellegrini accuses Bodo/Glimt coach Knutsen of attacking staff

Roma captain Lorenzo Pellegrini accused Bodo/Glimt coach Kjetil Knutsen of attacking a member of staff after their Europa Conference League clash in Norway.

The Norwegians won the quarterfinal first-leg 2-1, with Pellegrini accusing Knutsen of attacking Roma goalkeeper coach Nuno Gomes.

“Something truly unpleasant just happened,” the captain told Sky Italia.

“Their coach just attacked our goalkeeping trainer. First he said a few things to him, then physically attacked him.

“It’s really sad, because behaviour like this is an insult to Roma, to the players and the staff. It is shameful.”

On the plastic pitch, Pellegrini also said: “The shame is reaching a quarter-final where the ball bounces and you have no idea where it’s going to go. However, that mustn’t be an excuse, because in a week’s time there is a battle we want to win.

“I am honestly still shaken by what I just saw, it’s absolutely shameful. Now we want to send Bodo home, also because of what happened off the field.”
