There was an unpleasant mishap for Stefano Pioli after the game against Sassuolo as he had his league winner’s medal stolen from him.
As our colleagues at SempreMilan.it report, Pioli was given his medal as part of the ceremony during which all of the players received one too, but in the post-match press conference it became apparent his had been taken from him.
“They snatched my medal in the celebrations. If you can launch an appeal, thank you, it’s the only one I have,” he said. While nobody came forward with any information, Pioli will not have to wait long before he gets another one around his neck.
On Twitter, Lega Serie A picked up on what happened and responded as follows: “Hey Mr. Pioli, we’ll give you the medal again tomorrow.” He will get his prize back therefore to commemorate the first Scudetto in his career and perhaps this time – during the open top bus parade planned around the city – he will be extra careful to make sure it stays on him.
