London, Sep 16: Italian club Genoa’s coach Luca De Pra has been suspended after he was embarrassingly caught spying on a rival club wearing full camouflage gear.
According to Metro.co.uk, the Italian side’s youth goalkeeping coach was busted lurking in the woods on the edge of Sampdoria’s training ground, where he was taking tactical notes of what was supposed to be a closed session.
The local rivals play each other on Sunday in the Serie A, the report said.
A Genoa club statement confirmed that no director or member of the coaching staff had sent Luca De Pra to watch the training session at Bogliasco, adding that it was a personal initiative that was not part of the club’s modus operandi.
Another Genoa spy was also believed to be hiding in the hills on the other side of Samp’s training ground, but he evaded ‘capture,’ the report added.
A brilliant Sampdoria statement read that like a new Rambo hidden among the branches of the hill, Luca De Pra, goalkeeping coach of Genoa, has not been able to counter the counter-intelligence and counter-espionage of Sampdoria. (ANI)
