Italy Fan Gets Tattoo Of Chiellini Pulling Saka Away From Euro 2020 Trophy, It's Massive S**thousery

An Italy fan has immortalised Giorgio Chiellini's controversial foul on Bukayo Saka during the Euro 2020 final by getting it tattooed on his arm.


Chiellini stopped England forward Saka bursting forward in the dying moments on Sunday evening by pulling his shirt rather cynically.

The incident went viral on social media and England fans were furious at the Juventus man's antics - with some even calling for a replay of the match.

One supporter, however, has ensured nobody will ever forget Chiellini's antics. Sensational s**thousery.

Saka looks to be getting pulled away from the Euro trophy in a similar manner to how he was pulled on the pitch.

Fans have reacted to the ink and they aren't sure if to be impressed or concerned with the dedication.

Italy won the game 3-2 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in 120 minutes of action, with Saka missing the final penalty.

The word 'Kiricocho' has been linked with penalties since the 1980s and is to do with a fan who regularly went to Estudiantes games in Argentina, and even went to see the team train.

Estudiantes manager Carlos Bilardo claimed that whenever Kiricocho turned up to training one of his players got injured.

Instead of banning the fan, Bilardo hired him to welcome opposition fans and in 1982 the club won the league and only lost once at home, when the famous fan wasn't there.

After the manager moved on, the legend followed him and, whilst the fan stayed in Argentina, fans at Sevilla would chant it to wish ill fortune on the opposition, especially at penalties.

Talking to ESPN Argentina, Chiellini was asked about what he said.

The 36-year-old revealed: "I confirm everything to you. Kiricocho!"
