Genoa Coach Channels inner Rambo, spies on city rivals


Genoa coach channels inner Rambo, spies on city rivals

Before Sunday’s derby match against Sampdoria, a Genoa youth coach was caught spying on their city rivals’ training session in “full military attire,” leading to what might be the greatest press release in the history of professional sports.
Gazzetta dello Sport reported that Sampdoria fans saw or overheard some rustling in the trees bordering the training pitch. A member of the club’s staff then decided to look into the matter, and after a quick chase discovered the spy hiding behind a tree. The man turned out to be none other than Luca De Pra, a Genoa youth coach and “popular figure in the city.”
