Soccer: Roma coach calls Osvaldo 'cry baby'

Rome, May 27 - AS Roma coach Aurelio Andreazzoli called Pablo Osvaldo a "cry baby" on Monday after the striker's angry reaction of the end of Sunday's 1-0 defeat to city rivals Lazio in the Italian Cup final. Osvaldo, who has eight Italy caps, directed insults at Andreazzoli at the final whistle after being left out of the starting line-up and not brought into the action until the last 20 minutes of the match. "Osvaldo is not new to scenes like this in front of the cameras," said Andreazzoli, who is expected to part company with Roma after a disappointing campaign. "Then in private he might be a bit of a cry baby. It's his problem, not mine. "This behaviour came from a player who also represents the national team, where ethics and correct behaviour are cornerstones. But I repeat, it's his problem". The 27-year-old Argentine-born player soon hit back. "He'd have come across better if he'd admitted he's incompetent," Osvaldo said via his Twitter account, @danistone25. "Go and celebrate with the Lazio fans".
