Lucas 'insults disabled Milan employee'

Lazio midfielder Lucas Leiva reportedly told Milan’s disabled Press officer to ‘just sit there and shut up’ after Saturday’s controversial Serie A clash.

According to Il Messaggero, officials noted an incident between Lucas and Milan Press officer Ugo Allevi in their reports.

The Brazilian is alleged to have told Allevi, ‘just sit there and shut up,’ provoking the latter to respond with an expletive.

The comment would be in particularly bad taste, given Allevi is a wheelchair user.

It comes after a heated meeting between the sides at San Siro, with Franck Kessie, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Andrea Bertolacci, Luiz Felipe and Patric all risking disciplinary action for their roles in the Rossoneri’s 1-0 win.
