As funny as this all is, Emerson claimed that the only reason he chose to provoke Marica was because he had been abused by the club during their last few meetings.

That’s the situation Sampaio Correa winger Emerson Carioca found himself in back in December, when he bagged a dramatic winner against Marica to send his team to the Carioca Championship, and he celebrated by taking off both his top and shorts to windmill his redacted towards a group of opposition players…

On-Pitch Brawl
Unsurprisingly, it trigged an on-pitch brawl, and as a punishment for the incident, Globo Esporte note that Emerson, who left to join Portuguesa soon after, was hit with an eight-match ban for his role in the whole thing.

As funny as this all is, Emerson claimed that the only reason he chose to provoke Marica was because he had been abused by the club during their last few meetings.

“Marica’s people have been slandering me for the past three matches I’ve played against them,” he said. “They’ve called me a slob, an alcoholic and a fat monkey. I was annoyed at what went on.”

Apology
Portuguesa have confirmed that they intend to appeal the ban, but in the meantime, Emerson offered an apology to Sampaio Correa and anyone he offended with his actions.

“I want to ask forgiveness from Sampaio Correa’s fans, my team-mates, and also Marica’s fans, players and everyone who loves football,” Emerson said. “I deeply regret what happened. I was strongly provoked in both matches.

“The people in the stands were swearing at me and giving me a lot of bulls**t, and I crossed the line. It was not premeditated.

“There was total emotion, I couldn’t handle the emotion. However, I was wrong. I hoped I would only be in my underwear!”

Wonder if we’ll see this celebration on FIFA 22?
