Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri immediately apologised after some unsavoury comments directed toward a journalist on Sunday.
Sarri was speaking at his press conference following Napoli's 0-0 draw with Inter at San Siro.
The result meant Napoli trail first-place Juventus by a point, with the Old Lady having a game in hand.
Sarri was 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 personally.
