Unbelievable gaffe in Udinese-Sassuolo

Incredible gaffe in Udinese-Sassuolo before the whistle for the start of the match valid for the 16th day of Serie A. At the Bluenergy Stadium in Udine, in fact, during the minute of silence, arranged by the Lega Serie A on all fields to remember Antonio Juliano, who passed away on Wednesday at the age of 80, è the wrong image was projected.

On the big screen at the Friulans’ stadium, the picture of Antonio Juliano, the flag of Napoli, did not appear, but that of Paolo Pulici, a former Torino striker who also played for Udinese, now 73 years old and still alive. A rather glaring mistake that created embarrassment.

Juliano militò in Napoli from 1961 to 1978 for 17 seasons, including 12 as captain, and remaining for a long time the Azzurri player with the most appearances in all competitions; with the partenopei he won two Italian Cups (1961-62 and 1975-76), a Cup of the Alps (1966) and an Italian-English League Cup (1976). With the national team he graduated as European champion in 1968 and vice world champion in 1970.
