Perugia dump Korean hero
"Perugia president Luciano Gaucci said his club's decision to sack South Korea's Ahn Jung-Hwan was not for dumping Italy out of the World Cup but for his offensive remarks afterwards."
"It has nothing to do with the goal he scored against Italy," said Gaucci.
"He could have scored 10 and I wouldn't have felt offended. It was simply the comments he made."
"He said Korean football was superior to Italian football, when Italy is a footballing nation.
"We have treated him well with all our love, but his comments were offensive to me and to the whole Italian nation.
"I feel offended by what he said. He should respect other nations as well as his own."
Gaucci earlier told Italian sports daily La Gazzetta dello Sport: "That gentleman will never set foot in Perugia again.
"I am a nationalist and I regard such behaviour not only as an affront to Italian pride but also an offence to a country which two years ago opened its doors to him. "

Sore losers...
