Stakhovskyi harshly attacked Italy's national team coach over his excuses for Russia
Famous Ukrainian tennis player Sergiy Stakhovskyi has spoken out harshly against Italian national football team head coach Luciano Spalletti, who has made ridiculous excuses for his odes to Russian side Zenit. The 37-year-old Kyiv resident, who joined the Ukrainian Armed Forces at the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion, called the Azzurri coach a hypocrite.
Stakhovskyi wrote about this on his Instagram page. The holder of four singles titles emphasized that Spalletti used traditional narratives of Kremlin propaganda and reminded the Italian who finances Zenit and the war in Ukraine.
"Luciano Spalletti, you're a joke. Sports outside politics? To congratulate the head of Gazprom, the main donor of the war in Ukraine... Sh*t," Serhiy angrily spoke out against the Italian national team coach.
It should be noted that the Italian worked at the Russian club for four years and was dismissed in the 2014 match. With Zenit, he twice became the national champion and reached the Champions League playoffs.
