Serie A: Verona player threatened with death for missing a penalty

French striker from Verona Thomas Henry and his family received death threats after his missed penalty during his team's defeat against Inter Milan (2-1) on Saturday, he explained on the networks social.

“To all those who think they know football better than anyone and insult my family while hoping for their death, I hope you can one day find peace in your little lives,” Henry wrote on his Instagram account.

The French striker allowed his team to equalize by scoring in the 79th minute, then, while Inter had regained the advantage in added time, he saw his penalty hit the right post of Yann Sommer, beaten .

“One day you win, one day you lose, one day you score, one day you miss, that’s the life of a football player and I am proud to have scored for the second time in my career at San Siro after a ruptured cruciate ligaments and having started playing at the age of 15 at the lowest level of French football,” he recalled.

Passed by Nantes (2015-16) and Chambly, then in National (2016-18), Henry played in Belgium, before joining Serie A first in Venice (2021-22) and since 2022 in Verona.

His 2022-23 season ended in February 2023 when he suffered a torn cruciate ligament in his right knee. He has scored three goals this season.

The match between Inter and Verona was marked on the second goal of the Milan leader by an arbitration decision, despite the use of VAR, deemed “scandalous and lacking in respect” by the leaders of Verona.

Inter players were also criticized for their celebrations when Henry missed his penalty, with Italian internationals Federico Dimarco and Francesco Acerbi taunting him straight after his failed attempt.
