Insigne accuses Leipzig assisant manager of provoking and 'mocking'
Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne accused the RB Leipzig assistant manager of “provoking” him during the final minutes of their Europa League tie.
“The Leipzig assistant manager was provoking me,” Insigne told Sky Sport Italia.
“He was winking at me and sending kisses. He was mocking me. If you are winning the tie, you should shut up and respect your opponents. He was going over the top.”
The name of the assistant manager is Hungarian former player Zsolt Löw.
“I don’t think Leipzig did anything tonight, but it’s fair they go through, having won the first leg. It’s a pity. We were convinced that we had prepared this second leg very well, but our approach was completely wrong at home and the third goal was so avoidable."
