‘Lichtsteiner hit me in the…’

Malmo defender Pa Konate has accused Stephan Lichtsteiner of some below-the-belt tactics during Juventus’ Champions League win yesterday.

The Bianconeri saw off their Swedish counterparts on Tuesday evening with a 2-0 win courtesy of a Carlos Tevez double.

However, for one of the visiting party, the impression left by full-back Lichtsteiner was not the one expected.

“The images speak for themselves. I was on the ground helpless and he hit me with force between the legs, in my private parts,” Konate has told reporters after the game.

“It was crazy. I tried to ask him what he was doing, but he only looked at me without saying a word. I did not react as that is not my style, but maybe I should have. At the end of the match I swapped shirts with Giovinco, he’s a good boy.”
