Sarmiento boss, Caruso Lombardi fights with supporters at petrol station


Ricardo ‘Caruso’ Lombardi really doesn’t do himself any favours. The cartoonish Sarmiento manager was captured on camera fighting with supporters of the club at a petrol station after Monday night’s defeat to Rosario Central.

Sarmiento are currently bottom of Zone One in the Primera and are without a win since the opening weekend yet after the club turned to Lombardi two weeks ago, results have not improved. The 1-0 loss away to league leaders, Rosario Central was a fifth in eight games and while the squad stopped on their way back to Junín a confrontation took place.

It is understood that while some supporters and journalists were getting photos of the squad, someone believed to be a member of the Sarmiento barra brava threatened Lombardi prompting his aggressive reaction.

Caruso has since said that, “It was chaos. I don’t understand. We had played a good game. Rosario Central scored just once.”

Amid rumours that Lombardi may yet resign, the fiery 54-year-old has scheduled talks with club president, Fernando Chiófalo.
