Sassuolo star distances himself from father’s side of the family

Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca has distanced himself from the father’s side of his family after the recent incident involving his grandfather at a bar.

Scamacca’s grandfather was arrested for threatening a man with a knife while his father had caused issues at Trigoria. On Instagram, Scamcca posted about the incidents and he distanced himself from the incidents, while clarifying that he has no relations with his father’s side anymore.

He stated: “For the second time in months, I find myself again having to distance myself from the violent and unspeakable episodes committed by people linked to my surname but with whom I have closed all kinds of relationships for many years now.

“I reiterate once again that I grew up with my mother and my sister and that they are my family for me. No one else. So I hope that I will no longer have to be connected to news and reports concerning people outside the small nucleus in the future.

“I would like to be judged for what I do on and off the pitch without having to pay, in terms of image and consideration of the man I am and not for the irresponsible behavior of people whom I no longer recognize as part of my loved ones and my family “.
