Giorgio Chiellini And Paulo Dybala Branded 'Disgusting' For Celebrating Whilst Chievo Keeper Was Unconscious
Giorgio Chiellini and Paulo Dybala celebrating a goal (which was eventually disallowed) whilst Chievo's keeper was on the ground receiving treatment didn't go down well.
Stefano Sorrentino was forced to leave the field after colliding with Cristiano Ronaldo.
During the time he was on the ground unconscious, Mario Mandzukic headed the ball into the direction of the goal which was cleared off the line but he wheeled away in celebration thinking he had just scored.
As Sorrentino was being attended to by the clubs doctors, Chiellini and Dybala were celebrating as the goal was being reviewed.
VAR ultimately ruled out Mandzukic's goal. However, Juventus then scored in the 93rd minute to bag all-three league points.
But Chiellini and Dybala's behaviour was the talk of the game. Twitter didn't appreciate the pair high-fiving each other:

Head injuries are no joke in sports, you simply cannot excuse what Dybala and Chiellini did. And nope, I don't buy that Chiellini didn't notice that Sorrentino was seriously hurt.

The Argentine star issued an apology following the Serie A game, taking to social media: "I was wrong," he posted on Instagram.

Sorrentino, meanwhile, reportedly suffered a broken nose though tests show no other issues.
