Graziano Pellè is Friday, from the selection of Italy set for world cup-kwalificatieduel with Macedonia.

Coach GiamPiero Ventura took that decision as a result of the behaviour of the striker following his switch during the game Italy-Spain (1-1) on Thursday.

Pellè was visibly angry when he just after the peace between them, and refused the coach a hand.

“When wearing the national shirt to hear certain values, such as showing respect to the staff, teammates and fans. This behavior just doesn’t fit in,” said a statement.

Ventura left after the match already know is not happy with the behavior of Pèlle. “He was angry. The reason was perhaps not that he changed, but because he bad played,” said Ventura after.

“In football you see this more often, but I think this is not appropriate behavior if you the shirt of the national team attracts.”


Pellè offered after the end with his teammates and on his Instagram account to apologize for his anger and ignoring the coach. “Yes, I’m unfortunately back in the wrong. As with any misstep, you need the consequences to accept. I take my full responsibility and offer my apologies.”

The former striker of the Team exchanged last summer Southampton for the Chinese club Shandong Luneng.

Lazio-striker Ciro Immobile and the Torino striker Andrea Belotti are the possible replacements for Pellè in the base of Italy.
