SYDNEY: Melbourne Town Uruguayan captain Bruno Fornaroli escaped using a reprimand Friday (Dec 2) after he advised supporters to “f*** away” throughout a victory speech, believing the expression meant something else.

The indigenous speaker was addressing the group in English that was patchy after his group won the FFA Cup final in Melbourne on Wednesday.

After thanking the group proprietors, supporters and supporters, a mental Fornaroli ended by stating, “And f*** away!” as he pitched his address notes to the bunch.

He later clarified his words might have already been lost in translation, as he intended to say the English equal of “vamos”, which will be Spanish for “let’s go”.

“When you win the initial cup for the team it had been amazing so it turned out to be a fantastic moment and I went to say ‘vamos’,” he described to reporters afterwards. “But I said different things I believe.”

Football Federation Australia said about not using improper language, it’d reminded Fornaroli.

“Although we consider in to account Fornaroli’s apology as well as the truth English is his 2nd language, Bruno’s remarks on the period following the FFA Cup closing were improper,” A League leader Greg O’Rourke stated in a statement.

“It is an overall reminder to all players and authorities that foul language isn’t satisfactory and violates many in our neighborhood.”

Melbourne defeat against Sydney FC 1 – 0, with Tim Cahill scoring the winner, to raise their very first piece of silverware.
