The Serie B side’s fixture against Empoli in May 2013 was suspended for 30 minutes after crowd disorder, but the impatient Vicenza fan simply decided to give up on the 5-0 scoreline and unwittingly return home to a devastating sight.
The 36-year-old made it back home to see his wife in bed with another man, he told during a court hearing, as reported by Il Tirreno.
This week’s court hearing came about after an argument between the pair, who are still together despite the incident, which saw one wounded and a complaint submitted, where past differences had been explained to the judge.
Vicenza’s match against the Azzurri eventually resumed, but the home outfit succumbed to a 5-1 loss.
It is not currently known whether the man discovered under the sheets was an Empoli fan or not.
