The case arose from a question about the relationship with Delio Rossi. The Bohemian: “There is no rivalry between us. But I know who wanted to make it an issue between us…”
Poisonous queue in the post-match of Foggia-Pescara, first leg of the Serie C playoff semi-final, finished 2-2. Zdenek Zeman, coach of Pescara, had an argument with journalists in the press room at the Zaccheria. In the conference held at the end of the Serie C playoff semifinal, the Bohemian coach argued with the reporters present.
It all started while the Bohemian was answering a question about Delio Rossi: “I didn’t see him, I didn’t greet him. Here a rivalry has arisen between us that for me does not exist. But I know who wanted to create it… In Pescara? I’ll go say hi to him.” Zeman was asked to specify who he was referring to, given that the coach had coached Foggia last season, from where he had then left amid great controversies with the patron Canonico. The technician did not want to add anything else. In the press room someone whispered “it’s always the journalists’ fault”, and at that point the Bohemian spoke up again and said: “Here in Foggia there are few journalists!”. In the discussion that arose, most of the reporters present got up and left.
At that point the technician pressed: “Those who are leaving are not journalists…”. Then he answered another question and left the press room of the Zaccheria stadium. USSI and the Order of Journalists of Puglia are taking a stand on what happened.
