World of Football: Slap happy Sinisa is quick to gyp it in bud.

Byline: By Marcelo MEGA

IT SEEMS the happy slapping craze has spread to Serie A - and Serbian thug Sinisa Mihajlovic is the latest aggressor.

Mihajlovic was signing autographs in the stand during Inter's game at Fiorentina last Wednesday when a middle-aged home fan subjected him to a torrent of abuse.

Mihajlovic reacted in typical fashion, slapping him twice across the face before stewards intervened.

Unrepentant Mihajlovic said: "He kept screaming 'Gypsy, dirty gypsy!' So I just said, 'Right, that's it - let him try this.'"

The Florence fan really should have known better as Mihajlovic is no shrinking violet.

The midfielder has cultivated a reputation as a nasty piece of work over the years - support of extreme right-wing political groups, racially abusing Patrick Vieira and spitting on Adrian Mutu are just some of his infamous antics.
