Milan Ultras Scorn Calhanoglu for Derby Provocation

Turkish ace Hakan Calhanoglu took Milan by storm earlier in the summer by expressing his intent to play for eternal rivals Inter in a sudden free transfer that did not go down well with the Rossoneri faithful.

To add fuel to the fire, Calhanoglu returned to the San Siro by opening the scoring in the first Derby di Milano of the season and provoked the home fans by celebrating in front of them, with a knee slide followed by the cupping of his ears towards the Milan ultras.

He was immediately met with a heightened hostile reception that involved boos and whistles throughout the rest of the match.

The match finished 1-1 and in order to respond to the ex-Rossoneri midfielder’s actions the previous day, Curva Sud Milano displayed a banner over a bridge in the city that read: “Courage is not kicking a penalty in the tenth minute but staying with your wife even when you are a cuckold. Sh*t man.”

The incident is similar to what happened to Gianluigi Donnarumma the day before he returned to San Siro to star in Italy’s UEFA Nations League semi-final against Spain.
