MILAN – No minute of silence for Kobe Bryant . In the end, the long tug of war between Milan and the Lega Calcio Serie A was won by the latter. So San Siro celebrated Kobe Bryant but the players were unable to observe the minute's silence as they would have liked. Except that none of them knew about this change of plans and therefore they were all arranged in a circle to honor Bryant's memory.
When the referee informed him of the absence of a minute's silence, he was embarrassed on the pitch. Not even the fans were aware of this Lega Calcio Serie A decision and therefore when they understood the situation they started to whistle and sing chants against the Federation.
Milan-Turin, no minute of silence for Kobe Bryant: the reconstruction of a paradoxical situation.
Yesterday Sky Sport, had communicated the will of the Serie A League not to grant permission for the minute of silence to remember Kobe Bryant before Milan-Turin of the Italian Cup. This indiscretion of Sky had unleashed the storm on social networks. Many fans had expressed their discontent by covering Milan's social channels.
So, shortly after, the Rossoneri company published a tweet announcing an agreement with the Serie A League for the minute of silence for Kobe Bryant: “In accordance with the @SerieA, tonight we will wear mourning on the arm in memory of Kobe Bryant, who died in a tragic plane crash with his daughter Gianna Maria and 7 other victims. San Siro will observe a moment of recollection close to the beginning whistle.
But this was not the case and certainly not by the will of Milan, which in any case honored the memory of Kobe Bryant with a celebratory shirt and images spread on the big screens of San Siro. There was probably no agreement with the Serie A League because the latter denied permission for the minute of silence for Kobe Bryant.
The fans whistled this decision, they displayed a banner to remember Kobe Bryant and at minute 24, the tanker number of the ex-Los Angeles Lakers champion, they started a long applause.
