Beretta snubs Brescia meeting

Brescia Coach Mario Beretta refused to meet with fans after a vicious protest and is prepared for the sack.

The Rondinelle lost 3-0 at home to Chievo this afternoon and are lodged in penultimate place.

Tifosi staged a protest after the final whistle at the Stadio Rigamonti and requested a meeting with the tactician.

“I am not going,” Beretta told Sky Sport Italia television.

“They insulted me for 90 minutes. If they had been civil then I would've gone to the meeting, but in this atmosphere they can forget it.”

Beretta was only drafted in on December 6 and has lost five of his last six games.

It's reported Brescia will now recall Coach Beppe Iachini to the bench.
