Fiorentina manager Delio Rossi attacked player Adem Ljajic during today's match against Novara, taking offense to Ljajic's sarcastic applause after Rossi substituted for him early in the match. Ljajic—who just last week was considered a lock for a transfer to Arsenal—was apparently in poor form as Novara took a 2-0 lead against Fiorentina, fighting to avoid relegation from Italy's top tier of professional soccer.

It's not clear exactly what kind of blows take place, but AFP reports punches were thrown. (Italian paper La Gazzetta reports Rossi's attack was met with applause and cheers from the Fiorentina supporters.) [Sky Sports Italia]
