Napoli boss Walter Mazzarri said the player did so âbecause he knew he'd be caught on cameraâ, but FIFA President Sepp Blatter and several of Klose's Serie A contemporaries have been less grudging with their praise.
âBravo Miro Klose,â Blatter said on Twitter. âWith your gesture you have shown yourself to be a champion and a proper player.â
Inter midfielder Esteban Cambiasso also commented on the incident.
âWe should praise the honesty of Klose,â he told Mediaset Premium. âWe must honour this gesture. It is an example for all children to follow.â
