Video: Marek Hamsik and his penalty / staircase celebration FAIL (Napoli v Juventus)
Celebrating a disallowed goal is always a bit embarrassing, but Napoli star Marek Hamsik can rarely have been left more red-faced than after this bizarre sequence of events during last night’s match with Juventus.
Hamsik stepped up to take a spot-kick for his side after Andrea Pirlo had tripped Ezequiel Lavezzi in the box. He coolly converted the penalty before disappearing into a stairwell behind the goal, as you do.
Realising he couldn’t stay down their all night, he made his back up the stairs only to find that the referee had ordered a retake of the penalty.
Hamsik promptly missed. The humour of the situation was not lost on the commentator in the video above.
