Tuttosport: Odegaard fires expletive rant at Pioli – “It’s a friendly”

By Oliver Fisher -

Arsenal midfielder Martin Odegaard was not particularly happy with AC Milan’s Sandro Tonali during yesterday’s friendly that was played in Dubai, a report claims.

According to today’s edition of Tuttosport (via SempreMilan.it), there was some tension between Milan’s head coach Pioli and Arsenal’s captain Odegaard following a tough tackle made by Tonali, that forced the Norwegian to question the intensity levels.

There was a collision late in the first half between Arsenal’s Fabio Vieira and Tonali, which forced Odegaard to speak up as he was not happy about what he perceived to be a bit too much heavy-handedness in tackles.

As per the paper, he walked up to Pioli before shouting: “F***ing two times! It’s a friendly.”

Odegaard would open the scoring inside 21 minutes with a free-kick that left Tatarusanu rooted to his spot, and then Vieira had a hand in their second goal as he set up Reiss Nelson shortly before half-time.

    1. But he is not wrong though, friendly especially in the middle of season is just for maintaining fitness level. It’s unwritten rules that everyone should do their best to avoid any behavior/impact that could injure the opposition.
