The Turkish media give the news, the Sivasspor fan will be tried in a very direct way. The player, with a broken nose, considers legal actions

The Sivasspor fan who yesterday invaded the pitch in the final minutes of the match between the Turks and Fiorentina, assaulting midfielder Alessandro Bianco with a fist, was allegedly arrested. The news was reported by the media of the Anatolian territory, which also underlined how the fan of Sivas’ team will be prosecuted immediately.

The cause

Blanco’s attorney is expected today in Florence to evaluate the legal path to follow: the player wants to report his attacker. In the second leg of the Conference League won by Fiorentina 4-1, Bianco suffered a blow to the face that fractured his nose and will be checked today by the Viola medical staff.

Bianco yesterday posted a selfie on Instagram with the consequences of the attack: bloody nose and mouth. For now, UEFA has not issued any measures.
