Graziano Pelle kicked out of Italy squad for ‘disrespectful behaviour’
Graziano Pelle has been kicked out of Italy’s latest squad after refusing to shake Giampiero Ventura’s hand after being substituted.
The former Southampton striker was replaced after just 60 minutes in Italy’s 1-1 draw with Spain on Thursday evening.
And as he walked off the pitch, he blanked Ventura, who replaced Antonio Conte as Italy manager after Euro 2016.
In a statement released by the Italian FA, Pelle has been excluded for his ‘disrespectful behaviour’ towards Ventura and will now miss the World Cup qualifier against Macedonia on Sunday.
