Video: Maxi Lopez Grabbed His Crotch Instead of Shaking Mauro Icardi’s Hand Last Night

Video: Maxi Lopez Grabbed His Crotch Instead of Shaking Mauro Icardi’s Hand Last Night

It appears that one of the fiercest feuds in football today is still alive and well.

The two men at the heart of it – Mauro Icardi and Maxi lopez – came face-to-face on Sunday evening when Icardi’s Inter Milan took on Lopez’s Torino in a Serie A clash at the San Siro.

In case you’re not familiar with their beef, let us bring you up to speed.

The pair have been at war with each other for a few years now ever since Icardi married Lopez’s ex-wife Wanda Nara in 2013 – just months after Wanda and Lopez had divorced.

The fallout intensified when Icardi got a tattoo of Lopez’s three children on his arm, with the latter then refusing to shake the hand of his countryman in a Serie A fixture in April 2014.

And in another episode of the tiff, dubbed the ‘Wanda derby’, Lopez refused to shake Icardi’s hand again before kick-off, and appeared to grab his crotch as they passed one another:

Icardi would go on to call Lopez ‘ignorant’ after the match, which Torino won 2-1.

Must be awkward for all of the other players involved, eh?
