Napoli boycott Super Cup ceremony

Napoli are so angry at the two red cards in the Italian Super Cup against Juventus that they boycotted the presentation ceremony.

The Partenopei had been leading twice during the game in Beijing, pegged back to 2-2 after 90 minutes.

Goran Pandev was sent off for dissent – something he firmly denies – and quickly followed by Juan Camilo Zuniga for a second yellow card.

Coach Walter Mazzarri also saw red for his protests as the 90 minutes came to a close.

In extra time, Juventus emerged 4-2 winners, but Napoli went back into the locker room and refused to come back out for the presentation ceremony.

They did not receive their runner-up medals, so only Juventus lined up to receive the trophy. The Partenopei also announced they would not be talking to the media.
