| After being caught insulting Mario Mandzukic during Roma‘s 1-0 loss to Juventus on Sunday, Daniele De Rossi has apologised for his outburst.
Lipreaders were able to interpret the Italian’s angry vitriol, which included calling the Croatian international a “piece of s**t gypsy”.
Though De Rossi is known for his unforgiving nature on the field of play, he did not hesitate to apologise for his inappropriate language.
“I was caught on camera as I said a sentence that I should have avoided saying,” the Italian international said to Le Iene. “I’m sorry to those who felt offended.”
Such insults and much worse are a regular part of the game, De Rossi confesses, though fans rarely ever see them take place.
“It’s not the first time anyone has said these types of things, as it happens on the field,” De Rossi said. “That’s not an excuse though.
“I shouldn’t have said it, and like coach [Luciano Spalletti] said, we need to learn to cover our mouths.”
