Watch Roma star Nicolo Zaniolo suffer wardrobe malfunction and get penalised for diving as Jose Mourinho is sent off | The Sun

NICOLO ZANIOLO endured a wild couple of minutes after he was booked for diving and then suffered a major wardrobe malfunction.

The Roma star had been playing alongside Tammy Abraham up front for Jose Mourinho's side for Atalanta's visit to Rome.



However, with the team 1-0 down early in the second half Zaniolo then found himself bearing down on goal with a defender on his shoulder.

The 23-year-old then tried to win a penalty as he grappled with the defender, but was instead guilty of giving away a foul for diving, a decision which left Mourinho furious on the touchline.

Consequently, the hot headed Mourinho was sent off by the referee and was forced to watch the rest of the game at the Stadio Olimpico from the stands.

But the drama was not finished there, as Zaniolo was involved once again moments later.

This time he was grappling with the defender, but as the defender grabbed at his shorts Zaniolo suffered a major wardrobe malfunction.

The Italian will be thankful he chose to wear some pants today, after the defending player fell to the ground during his grab and revealed Zaniolo's tighty-whities.

He then fell to the floor and pleaded once again for a penalty to be awarded, but the referee repeated his earlier decision.

Despite, having the superior chances – as proven by Roma's xG of 2.44 to Atalanta's 0.17 – Roma went on to lose the game against the Serie A table toppers.
