Salvatore Aronica attacks and threatens journalist
NAPLES, Italy (AP) — Napoli defender Salvatore Aronica could face sanctions after hitting and threatening to kill a journalist.
The incident happened Sunday after Napoli's 2-1 victory over Udinese.
According to reports, Aronica repeatedly said "I'm going to kill you" while also slapping the journalist twice and jabbing him with his elbow.
The pair had to be separated by people present.
Aronica, who had been upset by the journalist's comments about him on television, later apologized.
