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.
