Assault: Perugia’s Gianluca Comotto punched & headbutted in the face in an Italian friendly

Perugia’s pre-season friendly against semi-pro side Castel del Piano turned vicious when visiting captain Gianluca Comotto had his nose broken in an ugly brawl.

34-year-old defender Comotto ended the match with a broken nose after he was assaulted by Castel del Piano player Alex Gibbs.

According to reports, Gibbs reacted angrily to a foul from former Torino and Fiorentina defender Comotto, and the amateur player responded by headbutting and punching Comotto in his face.

The referee sent both players off, but Comotto was left bad shape with his broken schnozz.
