Lawyer lifts lid on amazing ruck between Cagliari teammates

Cagliari midfielder Davide Marchini has clashed with teammate Pasquale Foggia in a bar.

The two are known to be at loggerheads, but lawyer Piero Olla has finally told the Triestina-owned man's side of the story to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Marchini and Foggia's spat started with a training ground fracas on October 24 when the two exchanged insults and Foggia shouted, 'We'll see what happens on Monday,' the statement starts."

"On Monday October 29, Marchini was with striker Robert Acquafresca in Caffe Agora in Cagliari when Foggia walked in and asked to sit at their table.

"Marchini refused and Foggia went outside, but a man with a thick Neapolitan accent arrived and sat in the chair next to Marchini.

"The man demanded to know why Marchini had fought with Foggia in training. Marchini got up to leave, but the man hit him hard in the nose.

"Marchini fled the bar being chased by his assailant, who was brandishing a chair. He escaped the scene when the man threw the chair at a parked car. Foggia and Acquafresca were standing outside."
