The incredible reaction of Spartak Moscow’s manager to Napoli’s manager snubbing his handshake.
After being rudely snubbed for a handshake by Napoli’s Luciano Spalletti, Spartak Moscow’s Rui Vitoria gave the most elegant reaction you’ll see.
In a 2-1 win over Napoli in the Europa League on Wednesday, Spartak Moscow earned all three points, and the defeat was felt by the Italian side’s manager.
Rui Vitoria’s team overcame the odds at the Otkrytie Bank Arena thanks to Aleksandr Sobolev’s brace in the first half.
Eljif Elmas scored for Napoli in the 64th minute, but they were unable to overcome the deficit.
With the win, the Russians are now in first place in the group, with Napoli in second place and level on points.
However, if Leicester City defeats Legia Warszawa, the Serie A club will drop to third place in Group C with one game remaining.
At full-time, Luciano Spalletti scurried down the touchline, refusing to shake Vitoria’s hand.
Instead of acting enraged, the Spartak manager struck a lighthearted pose as the camera panned around him.
However, Vitoria’s rejection has been attributed to a variety of factors, according to social media users.
Is this the best reaction to a handshake snub you’ve ever seen? Let us know in the comments section below.
Spalletti was previously the head of Zenit Saint Petersburg, according to one theory.
“He has Zenit loyalties,” someone wrote.
Vitoria was rude to the Italian boss before the game, according to the theory with more teeth.
“Rui Vitoria did not greet him at the start of the game, according to Spalletti,” an online user wrote.
“He didn’t salute me before the game,” Napoli coach Claudio Ranieri said after the game to Sky Sports.
“That’s when you shake hands with the other coach, not after you’ve won.”
“Before every game, I go to salute the opposing coach.
It’s far too simple to do it after you’ve already won.
“You have to give someone a warm welcome to your stadium.”
Last Sunday, Napoli were defeated by Inter Milan in their first game of the 202122 Serie A season.
The game was also marred by Victor Osimhen’s face injury, which will keep him out for at least three months.
To make matters worse, Lorenzo Insigne is also out.
