Former Inter and Napoli player Massimo Tarantino disarmed the man who attacked five people at a supermarket in Milan, which included Monza defender Pablo Mari. The attack took place yesterday evening which tragically saw one person lose their life while five others were admitted to hospital after the attack.
La Gazzetta dello Sport report that it was Tarantino who disarmed the attacker: “He was shouting ‘stop, stop’,” Tarantino told Italian media as quoted by Gazzetta. “I did nothing, I am not a hero.”
The report identified the man as a 46-year-old Italian named Andrea Tombolini, who is said to have had mental health problems. Reports suggest he had took the weapon from the supermarket shelves and started stabbing people at random.
Mari among those attacked and will undergo surgery today, but his injuries were not life threatening.
