Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri immediately apologised after some unpleasant comments directed towards a female journalist on Sunday.
Partenopei was held to a 0-0 draw with Inter Milan at San Siro with the result means Napoli bow to Juventus for the first place in the Serie A table with a point behind Bianconerri.
The 59-year-old coach was speaking at his press conference when asked if the draw meant Napoli's title hopes are gone and responded in a less-than-diplomatic fashion.
"You're a woman, you're nice, so I won't tell you to f*** off," the Napoli boss said.
Following the press conference, Sarri immediately went over to the journalist to apologise
